Join dozens of NYSN members and friends as they get into the Halloween Spirit and set out onto the streets of the Financial District; the site of graveyards, hauntings and some of the grizzliest deeds ever done! It will be a fun and informative way to explore, learn and socialize. We'll set you up on teams and give you everything you need to know to help find the clues.
How it works:
- Arrive at the registration point at 5pm sharp. If you come alone we will set you up on teams of 4-6 people.
- Enjoy socializing and a cocktail before you set out to find the answers.
- Each team will have 90 minute to find as many of the clues that we give you.
- When finished each team will return to a set location for socializing food and drinks
- Prizes are awarded to those finding the most clues. (all clues are part of the geography, buildings, history of the area. We don't plant any clues)
