  • Transportation Scavenger Hunt

    WHEN: Saturday, October 26, 2019 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    Join the APA-NYM Transportation Committee and YPT for the 7th annual Transportation Scavenger Hunt on October 26th from 3-7 pm! Teams of 3-6 people will scour Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, and others 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 are signing up as part of team, please indicate that in your registration. Individuals should feel free to sign up as well – we will group people in teams as necessary. 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 and be a member of YPT or APA-NYM to participate.
