The Midtown Madness Scavenger Hunt

Discover what you’ve missed

You’ll be amazed at the variety of cool, fascinating, and funny places you’ve walked past and didn’t know about. For example, did you know that there’s a section of the Berlin Wall in Midtown? A secret sound sculpture in the middle of Times Square? A Whispering Gallery in Grand Central? You may have worked in the neighborhood for years but easily missed the treasures we’ll show you.

This team-building activity features the best places in the core of Midtown, from 42nd Street to 53rd, centering on Fifth Avenue—and you’ll use passageways the tourists don’t know about. Sure, you’ll get a taste of the famous locations—Times Square, Grand Central, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral—but you’ll also discover TV and movie locations, hidden historic spots, tastes of foreign lands, overlooked oddball art, and much more.

You get to choose which area of Midtown you most want to explore. The locations you visit will depend on which section you’d like to start and finish in. You decide that and we’ll provide a tantalizing team-building tour.
