We are local explorers that venture into our own backyard...the Five Boroughs of New York City. We will visit historical landmarks, forgotten places, well-known places and go off the beaten path. If you love urban exploration or were just curious to see what was in your own town, this group is for you!

Membership is free and all is welcome!

Looking for Borough experts, Assistant Organizers and Event Organizers!

Find us on Facebook! Get information on happenings around the city, recommendations on books, shows, restaurants, etc., ideas and updates on upcoming events. All are welcome to post your ideas and photos!
