This Saturday, 6sqft is excited to sponsor “The Hunt: NYC LGBT Sites.” Put on by our friends at Urban Archive and the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project, the three-hour historic scavenger hunt will mark Pride Week by focusing on the history of the LGBT community in NYC. To give 6sqft readers an idea of what to expect, the Historic Sites Project has put together eight things you probably don’t know about LGBT history in New York, from the four remaining lesbian bars in the city to the first LGBT activist organization.
Last month, Urban Archive hosted their first trivia night, where participants were asked questions about NYC history based on archival photos. If you weren’t able to make it to the event, 6sqft has put together five of the toughest questions, along with their corresponding photos, to test your knowledge.
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.
