Event Description: An engaging site for a corporate team building event, this is where New York City truly began. While tourists rush to the usual spots – Times Square and Rockefeller Center, Greenwich Village and the midtown art galleries – the heart of the city beats loudest and largest at the southern tip of Manhattan, in historic Downtown. 

Location History: Dutch traders purportedly purchased the island of “Man-a-hatt-a” here from the Algonquin Indians in 1621 for $24 worth of beads and other trinkets. A defensive wall (c. 1644), protecting early settlers from British attack, rose here on the site of what later became Wall Street, the world’s financial center.

During your corporate team building treasure hunt…you’ll explore the bustling area from Battery Park to Wall Street, with possible stops along the way at the NY Stock Exchange, the Federal Hall Memorial (where George Washington took his oath as America’s first president), Castle Clinton, Trinity Church and much, much more. If you have never fully explored the alleys and backstreets of much-neglected Lower Manhattan, you are in for a huge treat.


Dr. Clue Gives You Three Ways to Customize Your Hunt Program

Not every corporate team building program is the same.  Depending on your group, your focus may be integrating new people into the team and breaking down personal boundaries and divisions.    Or you may have an existing department where teams could, with a little practice, cooperate and communicate more smoothly across teams and divisions.  Or you might simply have a group that thrives on the use of technology.    Let Dr. Clue customize your hunt program by selecting the content focus that best matches your group and your needs.   Read more about our 3 ways to customize your teambuilding event.
