How well do you know New York? If you want to test your knowledge and go down in the history of the city, then go to the most ambitious quiz about New York. According to Time-out, the iconic battle of wits returns after a four-year hiatus.

Panorama Challenge, officially the biggest New York-themed quiz game yet, uses the iconic New York City Skyline as its playing field. The event will take place on Friday, April 12 at the Queens Museum. Tickets are available for $20 per person.

Competitors will gather around the massive New York City Panorama exhibit. This scale model of the Big Apple was built for the 1964 World's Fair. Miniature skyscrapers, residential buildings, bridges, parks and rivers, imitation of sunrise and sunset. Even tiny planes take off over the miniature city.

The evening will be hosted by Gary Dennis, with tour guide Jonathan Turer serving as co-host with “a new batch of questions that will blow your mind.” Trivia topics this year include Awkwafina, SNL & Staten Island and Fame. You may need to brush up on your knowledge in these categories.

On the subject: Weird facts about New York that sound like fiction but are true

If you would like to participate, there are two options:

  • Advanced members can register as Panorama Pros. They will receive twice as many questions per round.
  • For non-hardcore history nerds, there's a Panorama Challengers category that promises easier questions. Definitely first register here, and then buy a ticket.

After two rounds and a classic quiz at half-time, the winning team will join the ranks of previous years' winners. Their names will be engraved on the Panorama Challenge trophy, which is housed at the Queens Museum.

This year's jury will include notable New Yorkers:

  • Kevin Walsh, webmaster of the famous blog Forgotten New York;
  • Michael Miscione, former Manhattan borough historian and expert on sewer gator history;
  • Michelle Miles, owner of Daredevil Tattoo and local tattoo history guide;
  • DiAnn Gorman of the Greater Astoria Historical Society board;
  • Mitch Palushek and Steve Scofil are former municipal employees;
  • Moses Gates is vice president of housing and neighborhood planning for the Regional Planning Association.

Between rounds, Harmony Hardcore (aka City Reliquary's Miss Metro 2023) will perform, and DJ Frankie Teardrop will play tunes from the 1964 fair all night long.

This year the Panorama Challenge is the 13th event, although its annual cycle was interrupted by the pandemic. Now the quiz show is finally back and ready to surprise and delight New Yorkers with a gaming night of puzzles.
