NEW YORK — The New York Time is hosting an online course on how to “solve mysteries” on the New York City subway.
The free website, called MysterySolve, allows users to “visit the mystery site” and then “solution” a mystery using the “best known theories” in the mystery.
The course is being hosted by New York-based mystery author and New York University graduate student Andrea Cerniglia, who says she wants the course to give subway riders an idea of how they can “find out” about mysteries and other unsolved mysteries.
In the course, Cernigan has set up a website to offer explanations of a variety of unsolved mysteries, from how to get the wrong door open to how to find the missing man who drowned his wife.
Cernigan says she hopes the course will be a useful resource for subway riders who may not have the resources to solve a mystery themselves.
The class is currently open to students in the city, but the site says that it will expand to include subway passengers from all over the country.CERNIGLI said she hopes MysterySave will serve as a way for subway and other subway riders to get a “good look at the puzzle, the theory, and the solutions” as they move through the city’s labyrinthine subway system.
