Have you ever wondered…
- Where is the oldest house in New York City?
- How long has that neon sign been there?
- Why does that building have a lighthouse on the roof?
Since the spring of 2017 Urban Archive has been trying to answer these questions! Join them for a nerdy night of NYC trivia, hosted by Andrew Gustafson of Turnstile Tours! With drinks specials provided by Housing Works.
Urban Archive is a free mobile app that maps thousands of historical images from the city’s many and wonderful libraries, museums, historical societies, and preservation organizations — so you, the knowledgeable Real New Yorker can explore NYC history, right where it happened. When it’s too cold to explore on foot, we move the fun indoors, for every New Yorker’s favorite activity… proving how well we know our city.
Once your team is built, don’t forget to have at least one person on your team download the Urban Archive app from the App Store!
Hosted by Urban Archive NYC in partnership with Turnstile Tours and 6sqft. Cosponsored by the Historic Districts Council, New York Preservation Archive Project, and the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project. (Photo courtesy of Museum of the City of New York)
