A daffy dash through the Meatpacking District
What’s old is new again—and incredibly trendy—in the Meatpacking District and along the High Line, the former elevated railway that has been transformed into a beautiful park with great views of the neighborhood and the Hudson River. As your team works together to answer entertaining questions with tricky twists, you’ll be immersed in the area’s chic sights, buzzing sounds, rough-and-tumble textures, savory tastes, and enticing aromas.
Along the way, you might discover…
- Cutting-edge art, soft green gardens, and rusting rails on the High Line
- Glitzy new restaurants, bistros, hotels, and designer stores, where celebs are often seen
- Chelsea Market—a former Nabisco factory and the birthplace of the Oreo—now a gourmet mecca where you won’t be able to resist indulging in a delicious treat
- A hotel that took in survivors from the Titanic
- A former stable built by the Astors for their racehorses, now home to posh restaurants
- Locations featured in movies and TV shows
- The site where Alexander Hamilton died after being shot by Vice President Aaron Burr during a duel
And those are just some of the highlights. No prior knowledge of the area is necessary to play—or even to win. You just need sharp eyes, comfy shoes, and great teamwork.
