Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square is the premiere New York City attraction in the heart of Manhattan, right on 42nd Street. Home to over 500 fun, outrageous and amazing exhibits on 2 floors at Ripley’s Times Square.
This holiday season, gift-givers seeking to make a dramatic impression can find their holy grail at Ripley’s NY! For the first time ever, Ripley's has curated an exclusive selection of rare gifts, hand-selected from some of the most extraordinary cultures around the globe. Nowhere else can one find such a diverse collection of singular treasures – from a Victorian-era momento mori woman’s handbag made of human hair to an authentic 16th century Austrian Iron Maiden torture device. The catalog of items will be available for purchase only during Ripley’s Holiday Giftacular, from 11/29-12/24.
A Man In Full
Born along with a perfectly normal twin brother in 1911, Johnny Eck’s torso ended where his hips should have been! Although doctors doubted he would survive past infancy, half-sized Johnny lived a full life, becoming an honor student, musician, composer, bandleader, movie actor, painter, racecar driver and performer before passing away at age 79.
