Watson Adventures’ the Lost New York Scavenger HuntBattery Park (State St & Battery Place New York, NY 10079) Map it $24
Visit the place where New York began, the southern tip of Manhattan, on a hunt that reveals the hidden and easily overlooked traces and places of the bygone city. You’ll explore such “lost New York” locations as the twisty streets laid out by the Dutch, the location of vanished and transformed forts, places where the Founding Fathers walked and fought, burn marks left by the enormous fire of 1776, and a fence that bears the scars of a revolutionary riot. You’ll enjoy amazing changes in scenery, from eye-popping interiors to the canyons of finance to Battery Park’s sweeping views of New York Harbor. You’ll even encounter Hollywood in places used as locations for such movies as Ghostbusters, Men in Black, Working Girl, National Treasure and The Day After Tomorrow. Come find out why this is one of our staff’s favorite hunts. Advance purchase required. Questions? Call 877-9GO-HUNT.
