A scavenger hunt can be a great way to get to know a new neighborhood–or discover things about its history that you might never have learned. Join Urban Archive, the Historic Districts Council, and the New York City Department of Records for a scavenger hunt using the Urban Archive app in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn on Sunday, October 6th.

The hunt starts at 1 pm. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team. You can register here, and you’ll get an email with the starting location a week before the hunt. Expect about two miles of walking. Teams can be between 1 and 4 people. At least one team member must have an iPhone with iOS 10+ (and the Urban Archive app, of course).
Urban Archive is a location-based mobile platform that helps bring the digital collections of New York City’s museums, archives, and libraries to more people in an easy-to-use resource for learning about the city’s history where it happened.
