We’re in the outdoor adventure hotbed of Manhattan this week. Oh wait, New York? That’s right, here in the hustle and bustle is headquartered an epicenter of all things adventure, the venerable Explorers Club. Founded in 1904, the club sits at 46 East 70th Street in New York City and it currently has 30 chapters worldwide. It is a “professional society dedicated to scientific exploration of Earth, its oceans, and outer space.” Here are 10 random items we found today snooping around the club. —T.C. Worley
