Last Chance! Win $100 to a Great NYC Jazz Club!

Just a reminder – July 4th at 11:59p EST is the deadline for entering the Scouting NY/The Jazz Session contest to win $100 to The Jazz Standard, one of the best jazz rooms in New York City! So if you’ve been thinking about entering, now’s the time to do it!


How to enter? In 1958, 57 notable jazz musicians gathered on a brownstone stoop for a legendary photograph entitled A Great Day in Harlem.

Your mission: where was this photo taken? With a bit of online research, finding the answer shouldn’t be hard…



  • E-mail the correct street with cross streets (i.e. 14th btw. Broadway & 5th Ave) and your name goes in the hat ONCE


  • E-mail the exact address (i.e. 23 W 14th Street) and your name goes in the hat TWICE


  • E-mail a picture of yourself photoshopped in front of the building using Google Street View, and your name goes in the hat 5 TIMES!


  • E-mail a picture of yourself actually standing in front of the building, and your name goes in the hat 10 TIMES!

In other words, the more work you do, the better your chances of winning! Remember, you can only pick one of the four above.

Submit your answer to!
