The Hunt: Yorkville / East Harlem

Yorkville and East Harlem’s history in the palm of your hand? You bet! FRIENDS has partnered with the Historic Districts Council and Urban Archive in creating “The Hunt,” a mobile app-based scavenger hunt.

The Hunt


Create a team of 1-4 people and download the Urban Archive app on your phone, lace up your sneakers, and race around East Harlem and Yorkville to see who can identify the most traces of the past–hidden in plain sight. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams! Roughly two miles of walking.


Starting Location: Church of the Holy Trinity
316 East 88th Street (Between First and Second Avenues)


Free to the public, registration required.
