Event description
Scour the city for clues to NY's history! Join us for the 7th Annual YPT-NYC and APA NYM Scavenger Hunt

About this Event

Join fellow YPTers and members of the American Planning Association's New York Metro Chapter for the seventh annual Transportation Scavenger Hunt! Teams of 3-6 people will scour Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, and more in search of answers to clues about the neighborhoods' transportation history.

This year we are continuing our partnership with Urban Archive, a location-based mobile platform that empowers New Yorkers to learn about history where it happened. The app brings together the digital collections of New York City’s museums, archives, and libraries in an easy-to-use resource built for discovery. Teams will use the app's historic photos and our organizers' written clues to 'check in' to locations throughout our hunt zone. You can also upload your own photos to show what sites look like today.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams during a networking event at the end of the hunt. If you have a team in mind, please have those individuals register separately and you will be able to form a team when we gather for the event. If you don't have a team, don't worry - you will be able to form a team or be placed into a team day-of! Please note that at least one person per team must have an iPhone running iOS 10.0 or later to participate.

This event is free but you must RSVP here and you must be a paid member of YPT or APA-NYM to participate.
