What we're about

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!

Our friendly host will be with you live via video on Zoom orchestrating the most fun trivia event you've ever been to! During the event you'll get to see all of the other participants via video. The event host will then pair you off into smaller teams and you'll be playing as a team against the other groups. You're welcome to join with friends or sign up alone and we'll put you on a team. Typically about 75% of the crowd signs up on their own so don't worry if you're by yourself!

In fact, the host gives everyone the opportunity to swap contact info with other people in the group at the end of the night if they'd like to.

We'd say about 65% of participants sign up on their own but if you have any friends or family members that want to join, they can too (simply message the host at the beginning of the event and ask to be placed on the same team as them). If you have someone in the same household as you, they are welcome to sit next to you and play along with you but each device needs to purchase their own ticket. *No more than 2 people can share the same device/screen.
