3 Go On a Walking Tour To Uncover NYC’s Secrets

Treat your team to a gift they’ll cherish forever: a burst of fresh air and some much-needed exercise away from their desks.

According to the US Census, two thirds of New Yorkers either walk or take transit to work. Up the stakes by bringing the whole office out into the outdoors to experience a walking tour where they’re the guides!

By answering clues, solving puzzles and unraveling riddles, your teams will discover things they never knew about New York City. By working together and pausing to reflect on their surroundings, they’ll build on their teamwork and observation skills, as well as having a lot of fun discovering NYC’s beauty spots and best kept secrets.

4 Unleash Your Coworkers on NYC With an Outdoor Escape Room

Let's be real for a second. Many of us are already metaphorically locked in our offices most of the day - we don’t need to be locked into one physically.

But what if we told you you can have the benefits of an escape room but with a bigger, brighter, and healthier venue for your team building activities in NYC?

If you choose an outdoor escape room in NYC for your team building day, your coworkers won’t need to worry about locked doors - but they will have to use their problem solving skills, as well as their abilities to think quickly and cooperatively.

By playing one of our outdoor escape rooms, your teams will have to combine forces and use their various strengths to their advantage. Race to reach top of the leaderboard or take the tortoise approach by moving with care - the choice is entirely theirs…

5 Solve a Murder Mystery in The City That Never Sleeps

If you’re looking for NYC building activities that are unique, fun and educational: look no further.

Turn your graphic designers, office clerks, administrators or whoever into daytime detectives by undertaking a classic murder mystery - with a twist.

Our murder mystery trails have been masterfully designed to give your teams the ability to crack mysteries, chase ‘suspicious persons of interest’ and find out who the perpetrator is.

By using their cunning wit and guile, they’ll have to find clues and react in real-time to mysterious events unfolding in front of them. Will they catch the killer? We’ll find out when we look at the leaderboard…

We’ve helped numerous New York City businesses craft their perfect team-building days, and to give you a flavor of how much detail we go into on our trails, check out these unusual NYC facts that we’ve managed to dig up…

1 In 1920s New York, Green Road Signs Meant Both “Stop” and “Go” Depending On The Road’s Direction

If you were driving east to west, a green sign meant “stop”. If you were driving north to south, a green sign meant “go”.

Luckily, a traffic officer from Detroit called William Potts developed the “red-amber-green” system we still use today in 1920 and NY adopted the system a few years later!

2 The NYC Neighborhood Chelsea Was Named After a Hospital in London, England

But “Greenwich” didn’t come from its English counterpart - when New York was still called New Amsterdam, “Greenwich” was called “Groenwijck” (“Pine District”) and was later anglicized to what it is today!

3 In 1976, Queen Elizabeth II Collected 276 Years’ Worth of Rent From Trinity Church at Broadway and Wall Street

The Church originally received its charter from the British King William III in 1697, where the Church promised to pay one peppercorn annually.

When Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip visited New York in 1976, The Queen received a glass Steuben jar containing 279 peppercorns to make up the rent owed to her distant relative!

4 Street Lamps in Central Park Can Be Used To Navigate

Next time you’re in Central Park, take a look at the numbers on the street lamps’ bases.

The first two digits of the number tell you the nearest street (ranging from 59th Street to 110th Street) and the last two digits will tell you if you’re located in the east or west (even numbers for east and odd numbers for west).
