From the back: "The excitement of Broadway, a shopping spree along Fifth Avenue, elegant dining among the skyscrapers of Manhattan, and a tour of the city's famous landmarks - all these are a part of the New York Scene. Have you ever wanted to own the Mets, Tiffany's, the Plaza Hotel or the Daily News? Now is your chance by playing the New York Scene! - you will buy and sell your favorite local properties; - become either a union leader, a lawyer, a politician, or a network executive; - bargain with the other players to receive a "Connection Card" which will permit you to develop your properties and thereby collect increased rent. The object of the New York Scene is to accumulate wealth and enjoy a unique witty and up-to-date view of the exciting way of life in New York. During the Game you will draw New York Scene Cards which will reward or penalize - for example: -- The Aussie Strikes Again - You may Buy Any or All of the Newspapers for Twice Their Stated Purchase Price -- You're Riding the Subway, the Hand in Your Pocket Belongs to Someone Else - Lose Two Turns Due to Shock"
