It’s On: Wikis Take Manhattan Tomorrow

After last week’s weather delay, Wikis Take Manhattan is set for Saturday at 1:00 p.m.

Wikis Take Manhattan is a photo scavenger hunt in which teams will fan out across the boroughs to collect shots for StreetsWiki and Wikipedia entries. Participants can begin the hunt from either of two locations: Columbia
University (at the sundial on college walk), or The Open Planning
Project’s West Village office (349 W. 12th St. #3).

The hunt will be followed by a party at TOPP, where prizes will be awarded for most and best photos.

Sound like fun? There’s still time to register. Walk-up registrants are also welcome.
