How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Located in the busiest square in Manhattan. On a sunny day you will be elbow to elbow with hundreds of New Yorker muggles. It is possible you will have trouble navigating this area due to the number of muggles bumping into you if you stand still to stare at a GPS receiver.

Make your way through the throngs of muggles on a busy day, just as Gandhi did, and you will be able to greet him eye to eye. He is the most accessible historical figure in Union square. Too many folks come to greet gandhi here, the cache is not here.

- Consider how many years old Gandhi would have been on the day this garden was dedicated.
- Add 3 to this number, divide the result by 10.
- Take your answer and subtract it from the least significant digits of both of the coordinates listed above.
- your answer should take you no more than a hundred feet away to the cache.

"My optimism restson my belief in the infinite capabilities of the individual to develop nonviolence... a gentle way you can shake the world".

Generations to come, it may be, will scarcely believe that such a one, as this, ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth. — Albert Einstein
