10th Annual Panorama Challenge

March 4 @ 6:00 pm9:00 pm


Doors open at 5pm, the game starts at 6.

Gen­er­al Admis­sion: $15 online, $20 at the door
The City Reli­quary and Queens Muse­um Members/Adopt A Build­ing pur­chasers: $12 online, $15 at the door

The Panora­ma Chal­lenge quizzes par­tic­i­pants about our city while laser­-wielding judges point out clues on the Panora­ma. The evening’s MC Matt Apter will read aloud the ques­tions, and teams of 10 (or so) will use those clues and musi­cal hints to deter­mine the cor­rect answer.

Teams may be orga­nized as either a Panora­ma Chal­lenger or Panora­ma Pro. Chal­lengers are first‐timers or those who may not have ded­i­cat­ed their lives to the study of our great city. Their ques­tions will be eas­ier! Pros are return­ing con­tes­tants who are die‐hard stu­dents of our city’s hid­den cor­ners – they answer dou­ble the num­ber of ques­tions each round (60 total!) Wor­ry not, friend­ly tour guides from The Levys’ Unique New York will be on hand to help match con­tes­tants with teams.

The win­ning Pro team will Join the Ranks of leg­endary past win­ners when its name is etched on the Panora­ma Chal­lenge Tro­phy at the Queens Muse­um!

Jonathan Tur­er, in his six­th year as Quiz­mas­ter, has again devised new ques­tions! For 2017: Open House New York has part­nered with the Panora­ma Chal­lenge to cre­ate a cat­e­go­ry based on their upcom­ing series Get­ting to Zero: New York + Waste. Oth­er cat­e­gories will include: Sein­feld; Snow in the City; Trav­el­ing by Sub­way; Mills, Mills, Mills; and Forts of NY. In light of BREXIT and the 2016 Pres­i­den­tial Elec­tion, the Half­time Quiz will fea­ture ques­tions based on British NYC and the Trumps.

This year’s impres­sive pan­el of judges includes award‐winning Dean of NYC Guides Lee Gel­ber; author and award‐winning web­mas­ter of For­got­ten NY, Kev­in Wal­sh; author and urban explor­er Moses Gates; two-time Panora­ma Chal­lenge win­ner Mitch Paluszek; and Man­hat­tan Bor­ough His­to­ri­an Michael Mis­cione.

While scores are tal­lied, there will be an elec­tri­fy­ing per­for­mance by Batalá New York — an all-wom­an Afro-Brazil­ian sam­ba reg­gae per­cus­sion band!

Beer pro­vid­ed by our won­der­ful friends at the Rock­away Brew­ing Co.. Sand­wich­es and snacks will be sold. A free shut­tle will trav­el between the Queens Muse­um and under­neath the Mets‐Willets Point 7 stop from 5-6pm and from to 9–10 pm.

Mem­bers of The City Reli­quary and the Queens Muse­um receive dis­count­ed admis­sion online and at the door.

Pro­ceeds from admis­sion and con­ces­sions sup­port The City Reli­quary Muse­um and Queens Muse­um.
