Additional Dates for the Financial District Scavenger Hunt: Friday October 21st, 2022 

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

COVID-19 Protocols

In accordance with current city and state protocols vaccination status is not mandatory for this event.  However, we do ask that participants act in a responsible manner and do not attend if feeling ill, showing symptoms or have been recently exposed.  Mask wearing is optional unless the venue or city has mandated that.  Everyone should respect the comfort levels of others as we transition into this next phase of socializing in the Covid era.
This event is nonrefundable.  If you have tested positive for Covid and cannot attend, we will do our best to provide you with credits to select future events with a copy of your positive test results. Please note that due to the cost involved in some activities credits may not be used for the event you missed.


Recommended ages:  21+.  The main demographic will be 30s and 40s but there will be many 20s and even 50s so those folks will feel right at home.

Can I come alone? Yes, most guests do! It’s a great way to meet new people.

Dress: Comfortable/Casual
