Explore New York City with us this summer! In celebration of the 80th Anniversary of Penguin Books we have put together an 8-week scavenger hunt!
Each week we will post 3 clues to Instagram, one per day on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday pointing to a New York City location that is linked to one of the Penguin Books 80 Bestsellers! You will have until the Sunday of that week to decipher the clues and post a photo of the location. Each week one winner will be selected from all participants. All weekly participants will be entered into a grand prize drawing. Happy hunting!
Can you decipher the mystery NYC location from Week 5?
Join the #Penguin80Sweepstakes #ScavengerHunt! Week 5, Clue 1: Grab a blanket and a book and find yourself a nice little nook, somewhere in the grass and below the trees, where you can sit and enjoy the summer breeze. Come back on 8/5 & 8/6 for the next two clues. Solve the clues and post a photo of the mystery location for a chance to #win!
Join the #Penguin80Sweepstakes #ScavengerHunt! Week 5, Clue 2: Manhattan may be an island, but there aren’t too many places where you will find a boat, but here you can rent one and go out for a little float. Out on the water and surrounded by green, lean back while your companion paddles and take in the scene. Have you figured out where this weeks location is yet? The third clue will be posted tomorrow 8/6. Solve the clues and post a photo of the mystery location for a chance to #win! Details in the link in our profile.
Join the #Penguin80Sweepstakes #ScavengerHunt! Week 5, Clue 3: One of the first structures built here amongst the trees, from this terrace there is quite a lot you can see. If you walk to the water’s edge and look to the right, this weeks location will be perfectly in sight! Post a photo of this weeks location by the end of the day on Sunday, August 9th for your chance to #win! Details in the link in our profile.
