Tasks / Journey To The End Of The Night Manhattan

This task is retired.

A pursuit across Manhattan in 5 parts.

The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by the slow strobe of fluorescent buses and dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger's signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.

For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities, and all your usual motives for movement and action, and let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.

No bikes, no cars, just feet and public transportation.

Document your experience.

Friends and I met up at Eyebeam Atelier on the west side of town. After signing in, listening to the rules, and brief strategizing, we were off running. We mainly ran to get out of the crowd as fast as we could. Off to check point 1, we decided to ta...

"As if I knew where I was going, I put on an air of choosing and changed my direction, taking a different street on my right, one that was better lit. "Broadway" it was called. I came out to the city last weekend for the Manhattan journey, to ha...
