You may know Urban Archive as the fun app that brings together the digital collections of New York City’s museums, archives, and libraries, but did you know they also host equally fun history-themed events? After three successful scavenger hunts, they’re now holding their first trivia night later this month. Hosted by Andrew Gustafson of Turnstile Tours, the event will take place at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe in Soho, where staff mixologists will provide libations to accompany the competition.
Some of the rounds will include topics such as the history of Soho neighborhood, LGBT activism, and a special round that uses the Urban Archive app’s then-and-now images as clues.
If you’re interested in participating, sign up fast, as there are only a few spots left (please note that a waiting list will open once the event is full). Teams can be 1-4 people, and at least one member must have an iPhone (iOS 10.0+) with the Urban Archive App.
Here are all the details:
