The Hunt is a list of 30 historical images from locations around the East Village (plus NoHo and Alphebet City); for each historical image, we’ve provided a clue to its location. Drawing on these clues, your own local knowledge and photography skills, your team will try to check in at each location.

To get credit for solving a clue, check in at the location (tap the lock icon to the left of the clue; if you’re in the right place, it will turn green).

Each location you check in to is worth a single point. For clues that start with a camera emoji (📸), tap the image to re-create the historical photo for an additional point. After you’ve lined up your re-creation, please remember to tap the “submit to hunt” button. A green border will appear around the image on the list view.

Good luck and happy hunting!
