"Printed Rivals" a 19th-century Murder Mystery Adventure

  • Printing House Square, New York, NY 10038 (map)

Step back into the 1890s and join the crack reporting teams of the great newsmen rivals Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst. Before their names were legendary they were the owners of two New York City papers that redefined journalism and created the 24-hour news cycle long before the dawn of television. In 1897, their fiercely competitive coverage of a shocking New York murder fed an explosion of tabloid journalism that helped to solve the crime.

On this immersive journey through NYC history, you'll join other adventurers to experience the birth of yellow journalism and work together to solve the murder case that sparked a tabloid war. Participants will be divided into teams and given authentic clues that will lead them through a historical exploration of the city to the conclusion of this historic case. We will finish our adventure by celebrating like 19th century journalists- drinking and telling tales in a nearby pub!
