Hidden New York City Trivia - Part 3!

New York City Trivia - Questions about The Big Apple's Hidden Gems - Part III

On our recent New York City Hidden Germs Big Adventure, we took over the basement bar area of Puck Fair in SoHo, divided into teams and challenged our noggin with some quality trivia about all things hidden in NYC. We wanted to bring the quiz questions to the web and see how well you can handle these stumpers. Each day, The Big Adventure will bring you five of our questions from our NYC Trivia in six easy daily installments. Scroll down for link to answers. Behold, Round Three:

11. What infamous New York City crime boss was dubbed “Dapper Don” by the press?  

12. What New York City Island was reportedly bought from the Indians for 2 axe heads, a string of beads and some iron nails? (Hint: It Ain't Manhattan)

13.  What intersection marks the original site of Madison Square Garden?

14.  New York City has the largest urban parks system in the United States.  This includes recreation centers, golf courses, ball fields, zoological and botanical gardens, monuments, historic houses, beaches, forests, meadows and wetlands.  How many thousands of acres of parks does New York City have?

15.  There is one object, which can be seen all over the city, which has all of the following on it:  a beaver, barrels of flour, a sailor named Dexter, an Algonquin Indian named Sinister, a plummet for sounding channels, a cross-staff, a curved bow and a laurel branch.  On what object can all of these objects be found?

Round four is coming your way tomorrow!
