WITH OUR SPECIAL PARTNERSHIP WITH THE MUSEUM OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK (MCNY), WE’LL BE OFFERING UNTAPPED CITIES INSIDERS FREE TICKETS TO MCNY PROGRAMS AND SPECIAL CURATOR-LED WALKTHROUGH OF THE MUSEUM’S LATEST EXHIBITIONS.

For more than 160 years, Central Park has offered millions of New Yorkers 843 acres of rolling hills, hidden nooks, and sprawling lawns – right in the middle of Manhattan. But beyond Belvedere Castle and Sheep’s Meadow, how well do you really know your Park?

The Museum of the City of New York invites Untapped Cities Insiders to discover the hidden secrets and stories of New York City’s iconic Central Park on a summer afternoon scavenger hunt. Alone or with a team, participants will race to match historic images of the Park to their present-day locations using the Urban Archive smartphone app. After you’ve uncovered all the clues, meet back at the Museum terrace for light refreshments and an awards ceremony.

DATE: Sunday July 29th at 12:30PM to 4:00PM

PRICE: FREE for Untapped Cities Insiders! ($20 for the general public)

CAPACITY:  10 guests. Spots allocated on a first come, first served basis.

REGISTRATION: Opens Tuesday, July 17th at 12:00 PM EST

THINGS TO NOTE:

  • Players can participate solo or in teams but everyone must register individually
