Join a fun group of NYSN members and friends and set out on the streets of the Financial District; the site of amazing graveyards, hauntings and some of the grizzliest deeds ever done!  It will be a fun and informative way to explore, learn and socialize.  We’ll set you up on teams and give you everything you need to know to help find the clues. Space is limited. Following the hunt, you will have the option to socialize at an outdoor venue.

How it works:

  • Arrive at the registration point at 7:00 pm sharp.  If you come alone, we will set you up on teams of about 5 people.
  • Each team will have 90 minutes to find as many of the clues that we give you.
  • When finished each team will return to a set location for socializing food and drinks
  • Prizes are awarded to those finding the most clues. (All clues are part of the geography, buildings and history of the area.  We don’t plant any clues.)

What are we looking for?

Lower Manhattan in the early 1600s until now has been the site of hangings and hauntings, massacres, explosions and other not so nice and creepy things.  You will be scouring Bowling Green to City Hall, visiting supposedly haunted places and searching for history markers while doing some research on things that have happened.

Cost:  $25 General Admission / $15 Lifetime VIP Members Admission
