NYC Keys to the City Scavenger Hunt
This yearly event, now in its fourth iteration, is sponsored by the Museum of the City of New York and indeed feels like a cross between a Movable Feast and a Love Letter to all things New York Centric.
This year's theme was New York City in the Movies and indeed it proved to be a challenging series of clues.
All contestants and teams are given a set of clues and they are asked to answer them correctly and then seek them out in real space by any means necessary. [In fact choice of transport can play a critical role in determining each teams level of success].
Once identified, They have to take a photo of all team members in front of said building, place, sign, etc. and post to instagram to get credit.
Great strategy has to be considered as:
a. One has to arrive at the right answer
b. It would be virtually impossible to answer all 50 questions in the 4 hour time frame given and
c. Various sites are weighted differently causing contestants to consider their route.
Congratulations, Adam and team Something Else for winning 3rd place!
