    Here’s how to play:
    • Beginning October 24, participants will download a form from downtownalbany.org/ispy that includes 12 clues, one for each of the buildings/landmarks in the downtown area that have been selected for this contest.
    • Using the clues provided on the form, take your team to the streets of Downtown to find the building.
    • A daily BONUS clue can be found on the sponsors' social media sites. Make sure you’re following Discover Albany, The Downtown BID and Albany Archives on Facebook and Instagram!
    • Gather your friends and head Downtown and solve the clues! Once you solve the clue, take a picture of the building with a member of your team visible. Please wear masks and practice social distancing on your hunt!
    • Submit your photos and a picture of your completed form to info@downtownalbany.org by 5:00 PM November 2.
    • Completed forms will be entered into a drawing for valuable gift certificates to the downtown Albany businesses of your choice. First prize: $200 in gift certificates; second prize: $100; third prize: $50.
