It’s a scavenger hunt like you’ve never seen before. Discover the rich musical history of Greenwich Village during BLOCKS NYC. Starting in Washington Square Park, teams will move around the Village in search of iconic rock album cover locations. Find a location, reenact the scene, snap a picture, and keep hunting.
• Starting from the iconic Washington Square Arch, teams will be given the album covers of celebrated musicians of the era.
• From here teams will set off to find the locations of the original photo shoots and recreate the album cover.
• At the end, teams will arrive at The Bitter End, where we will celebrate by sharing pictures and stories from the day over drinks.
