Thanks to an email list I'm on, today I finally got around to checking out Kickstarter--the site for connecting worthy projects of all sorts with potential supporters.

I've just begun to browse the site, and right away found one to support: the City Reliquary, a community museum in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that preserves and displays all sorts of New York City artifacts--from geological core samples to paint chips from the L train.

If you're among the next 19 backers to pledge $5 or more, they'll send you an Authentic DSNY Street Sweeper Bristle. $50 gets you a membership.

To find this and other projects you might want to back, go to

You can visit the City Reliquary Saturday or Sunday from noon till 6 or Thursday 7-10 pm. See:
