THE TAR 21 FINALE PITSTOP

will be at

GOTHAM HALL!





Located at 1356 Broadway@ 36th Street, Gotham Hall is part of the Haier America Corporate headquarters, it was originally the Greenwich Bank Building.

"The Greenwich Bank Building was constructed in 1922-1924 and designed by Edward Palmer York and Philip Sawyer. The space was previously occupied by the two-story Sheridan building before York & Sawyer designed the six-story building, with basement, that stands today.

Identified as one of the most refined examples of York & Sawyer bank buildings by The Landmark's Preservation Commission, the three facades are one of the finest examples of classical architecture. This ancient Roman style encompasses a rusticated podium, monumental Corinthian colonnade and high attic. The challenge of this building is the irregular quadrilateral created by Broadway's diagonal axis and the gentle downward slope from 6th Avenue to Broadway. The three facades are skillfully composed, obscuring these inequalities.

Upon arrival, the main entrance has two four-panel double bronze doors, which lead you into the 52,000 square foot interior. The exterior is clad with Indiana limestone above a polished pink granite base. Every evening, the grandeur of the building's stunning architecture is illuminated with showers of blue light."

I think Lexi has incorrectly put Tot Ziens and Zai Jian under the Bangladeshi flag. The words under the Chinese and Indonesian flags should also be wrong. Beekman will probably do better at this, but I'm not sure about the Chips.

 :cmaslol   OK, now that we have a clearer view of the Brooklyn Navy Yard bungee jump, here's an updated view of exactly where it takes place.  (no surprise, it's over the water.... should have known).   :cmas19

A = bungee jump
B = big crane
C = white (temporary) building

I wonder if a Houdini theme is planned. He's buried at Machpelah, just down the road from the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Is Time Square - Broadway in the mix of locations briefly featured like in season 12 with the Captain Cook and Salmon Statue?

It think it reads Amazing Houdini, with three placards for three teams. So...maybe the Chips were scanning the area in our previous photo, then they found this billboard and rush off to the Navy Yard.

I'm pretty sure that the location of the memory task is in the front of 1 United Nations Plaza. :tup:

Here's for comparison (look at the white building on the right).

The jumping in the Brooklyn Navy Yard is a RB.  See the red clue in Trey's hand:

Well, I think I know what the Chips were looking for:
