Put your sleuth skills to the test and show us how much you know about your neighborhood! Keep track of your discoveries and share your success with us on Instagram via hashtag #WHAhunt.

Daily Clues:
Each day, we’ll reveal a new clue on Instagram, which will be presented through a riddle and a distorted photo.  Use your knowledge of the neighborhood and our previous posts to help guide you.

Make sure you follow us on Instagram to get first dibs on the clues.

How to Enter:
Follow the clues each day and leave a comment with your answer on each respective post.  Make sure you tag @weheartastoria and use the hashtag #WHAhunt

The Handsome Prize:
The more you play, the greater your chance to win prizes such as gift certificates from Lockwood, Meg’s Food Lovers’ Guide to Queens book, limited edition We Heart Astoria swag and more!

Join us and hunt throughout the entire month of August, starting on Tuesday, August 5th – Saturday, August 30th.
