Watson Adventures’ Secrets of Greenwich Village Scavenger Hunt
Go on a whirlwind tour of one of the city’s most fascinating neighborhoods on a unique scavenger hunt in Greenwich Village! You’ll search twisty streets packed with history, including the hangouts of rockers, writers, poets and painters, from cafes and clubs near NYU to quiet West Village coves with some of the city’s oldest houses. Highlights include the homes of Mark Twain, O. Henry, Thomas Paine, and TV’s Friends gang; the city’s narrowest house; movie locations; the club where Jimi Hendrix was “discovered”; and the site of a Weather Underground bomb factory.
The game is played on smartphones using our browser-based app. Local Covid and social distancing regulations will be followed. Advance ticket purchase required.
Venue: Washington Square Park
5th Avenue & Washington Square
