The West Side Highway in Manhattan, opened in 1936, was the world's first elevated highway.
By Mike Governale

When the world’s first elevated highway was completed in 1936 along Manhattan’s west side, the New York Times marveled that “the gleaming new concrete ribbon” would let drivers travel from lower Manhattan “nearly to Poughkeepsie without having to stop for a traffic light or slow up for an intersection.” Legendary city planner and master highway builder, Robert Moses promised the new highway would “eliminate” traffic jams on the city’s west side…

$500 ROC Transit Day Treasure Hunt

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

ROC Transit Day Treasure Hunt [PHOTO: John Derycke, Derycke Motorsports Photography]
By Mike Governale

Last year, as part of ROC Transit Day external link, we planned a city-wide treasure hunt where teams followed a series of clues (for over 19 miles) to be the first to find a $500 cash prize at the end. The only catch: No motor vehicles. All teams were required to use public transit, walk, or bike. (it’s in the rules!)

This year (Thursday, June 18) we’re doing it again. It’s completely free to enter, but you must pre-register here external link before June 17. Right now we only have 6 teams signed up, so your odds would be pretty good; as long as you have a good working knowledge of Rochester.

Still not sure if you’ve got the right stuff? Take a look at the clues from LAST year and see how well you’d fare…
