The Queens Museum in New York is looking for Big Apple trivia buffs and those who heart New York for their tenth annual Panorama Challenge, a city trivia competition to be held on Saturday, 4 March at 6pm at the museum’s famous Panorama of the City of New York, the world’s largest architectural model, made for the 1964 World’s Fair. The trivia categories range from Seinfeld to sanitation, and judges will give hints by pointing with lasers to different areas of the city on the Panorama. If you’re new to New York trivia, fear not: the teams of around ten participants are divided into “Panorama Challengers” (first-time players, “or those who may not have dedicated their lives to the study of our great city”, the museum's announcement reads) and “Panorama Pros” (seasoned contestants, “die-hard students of our city’s hidden corners”), who have to answer more challenging questions, and double the number per round. The winning (Pro) team will have their name etched into the Panorama Challenge Trophy, kept at the Queens Museum, alongside the champions of previous years. A halftime quiz taps into the 2016 political twists and turns in the UK and US, with questions about “British NYC” and the Trump family.
