The Highline is one of New York’s top attractions but how much do you actually know about the former train trestle that brought fright trains in and out of NYC from 1932-1980??? Join us for this fun evening of adventure, history and socializing as we invite members and friends to see how much they can see and learn while having a little friendly competition with other members of the group. No experience is needed and we will make up teams when you arrive (unless you already have one).Here is how it works:
- Arrive at Rocky’s Pizza Bar at 7pm sharp for registration.
- If you don’t have a team (which most won’t) we will set you up with other fun people.
- Our NYSN host will explain the rules then give you a list of clues that you will need to find.
- Each team will be given 90 minutes from the time they are sent out to get from one end to the other with as many clues as they can find.
- The group will end at a designated place near Gansevoort Street to hand in their sheets then eat and drink while the numbers are tallied.
What will we be looking for? Historical and contemporary points of interest on the Highline and the surrounding buildings/structures.
What if it rains? If it is too dangerous to host, the hunt will be rescheduled or you can have a refund
