Good running shoes or the like a MUST!
Right next to the 4/5
You could pick up water along the way, but it might be nice to have a little bottle on a hot day.

While the event started off bumpy (there are TWO flagpoles in Battery Park and the contact person for Watson seemed less than knowledgable about this)...and because of being late we didn't get to start on time or have the pleasure of joining with another group, once we got on our way we had a tremendous time. The scavenger coordinator was very accommodating of our tardiness and had a sense of humor. But hands down learning about the history of NYC was a blast. Sites passed daily hide fascinating tidbits about how the city came into being. My partner and I vowed to return to each site to explore them individually. And who can beat the rush of wanting to "best the other teams" or avoid running into them--or yelling out an answer in Castle Clinton that one of them might hear =) I'd recommend this adventure to anyone.

Very fun and we learned a lot of new things about NYC. However, you only have 2 hours to complete this so I definitely suggest going back another afternoon to read and enjoy the locations at a more leisurely pace.

This was my second Watson Adventure and it lived up to my expectations! The staff was personable and professional and the tour was fun and educational. There is so much great history downtown that I tend to forget about it as a tourist attraction. This tour takes you to it all. We unfortunately didn’t have time to get to about 8 of the 25 or so questions. The first 2 that we had were a bit difficult and that put us behind. I am a New Yorker who walks at least 2 miles a day and this tour wore me out – admittedly we had already walked a bit too much before the tour. You really need to come at this one fresh as it is a ton of running around… really… even for us jaded folks. – But totally worth it – take this tour if you are a tourist or resident – I learned quite a few things on this hunt. We were a pair of 2 and were partnered with 2 other lovely people as they prefer you hunt in groups larger than 2. This was fun to have some other perspective too. Sometimes these questions are tricky and it “takes a family”.

About the Ticket Supplier: Watson Adventures
Watson Adventures sprang from the mind of Bret Watson, a veteran writer and editor (and occasional stand-up comedian), who started creating scavenger hunts in the early '90s for friends as a way to share his unique take on the lighter side of museums. As word of the unusual scavenger hunts spread, companies began to ask Bret to let them get in the game, and a business was born.
Since then, Watson Adventures has grown to span the nation, with more than 200,000 people participating in hunts, including employees of more than 1,000 prestigious corporations. All the while, Watson Adventures' scavenger hunts have received more media raves and other acclaim than any other company of its kind. Below, you can learn more about the creative, clever crew who've made our success possible.
