The Enigmatist at The High Line Hotel blurs the line between reality and fiction and invites participants to step into the mysterious, historical world of the Riverbank Estate, the "cradle of cryptology" reimagined at The High Line Hotel's gothic Hoffman Hall. Guests will experience mind-bending illusions while solving entertaining riddles and puzzles created by David
Kwong exclusively for this show.
Riverbank Estate was a real-life bizarre and fantastical estate, established in 1908 by eccentric multi-millionaire George Fabyan, where he and cohorts William and Elisebeth Friedman pioneered the science of cryptology. This team went on to lead the American military's code-breaking efforts in World War I and II and eventually form the foundation for the NSA.

Brett Banakis, International Scenic Supervisor for the global theatrical marvel Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, serves as the Production Designer.

About The High Line Hotel:
Nestled within a cluster of landmarked buildings in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood sits The High Line Hotel, an 1895 red brick Collegiate Gothic jewel originally built as student housing for the General Theological Seminary. A peaceful sanctuary, the hotel offers 60 oversized, light-filled rooms that blend vintage details with modern amenities. Dotted with flickering gas lamps, the boxwood-lined, fountain-accented front garden and back patio are neighborhood gathering spots where locals and their dogs can be found enjoying pink Champagne or espresso from Manhattan's only Intelligentsia outpost - and fast free Wi-Fi. The High Line Hotel is a development of MCR and The Brodsky Organization.
