The High Line is one of New York’s top attractions but how much do you actually know about the former train trestle that brought freight trains in and out of NYC from 1932-1980? It is also dedicated to presenting amazing art installations each year.  Join us for this fun evening of adventure, art, history and socializing as we invite members and friends to see how much they can discover 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:

  • Meet in front of  Whitman’s Burgers 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 with outdoor space near Gansevoort Street to hand in their sheets then eat and drink while the numbers are tallied.
Cost: $25 general members / $10 VIP members- Includes scavenger Hunt Only
