WHAT Wikis Take Manhattan is a scavenger hunt and free content photography contest aimed at illustrating Wikipedia and StreetsWiki articles covering sites and street features in Manhattan and across the five boroughs of New York City.


WINNINGS? The first prize winning team members will get Eye-Fi Share cards, which automatically upload photos from your camera to your computer and to sites like Flickr. And there will also be cool prizes for other top scorers.

WHEN The hunt will take place Saturday, October 10th from 1:00pm to 6:30pm, followed by prizes and celebration.

WHO All Wikipedians and non-Wikipedians are invited to participate in team of up to three (no special knowledge is required at all, just a digital camera and a love of the city). Bring a friend (or two)!

REGISTER The proper place to register your team is here. It's also perfectly possible to register on the day of when you get there, but it will be slightly easier for us if you register beforehand.

WHERE Participants can begin the hunt from either of two locations: one at Columbia University (at the sundial on college walk) and one at The Open Planning Project's fantastic new event space nestled between Chinatown and SoHo. Everyone will end at The Open Planning Project:

148 Lafayette Street
between Grand & Howard Streets


Please watchlist Wikipedia:Wikipedia Takes Manhattan. This will have a posting if the event is delayed due to weather or other exigency.

Thanks for the update - it's up to the closing admin to see if s/he decides to keep it or not, since there's still no ID of the buildings :) Skier Dude (talk) 23:49, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

R151 (New York Subway car)

I found another link that mentions the R151 subway car that you tagged for deletion( I don't know for certain whether it's a genuine hoax, but it's definitley a rumor. ----DanTD (talk) 01:40, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Forums aren't generally considered to be reliable sources. However, you are welcome to remove the proposed deletion tag if you choose. Stifle (talk) 09:34, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
