The Debut of the Atlas Obscura Road Trip Series!


The New York Obscura Society is hitting the road! The first in a brand new series of monthly excursions is kicking off in January 2014 with a full-day roundtrip excursion to Philadelphia.


Join us in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on the morning of Saturday, January 11, as we prepare to leave New York City behind and head south to explore the City of Brotherly Love. From learning about the science behind the sideshow in America’s greatest medical museum to wandering the historic corridors of a former high-security prison, we’ll be sharing several of our very favorite Philadelphia locations and hopefully discovering new wonders along the way.
