Dumplings, Pizza, and Knishes…Oh My!

This week our summer interns had the opportunity to go on a walking history and food tour of Lower Manhattan. Starting at the African Burial Ground National Monument, we then walked through Foley Square to get to Chinatown, where we stopped for our first food stop, fried dumplings.

Crossing over Canal Street, we walked through Little Italy, and after a sit down pizza break, we continued the tour toward the Bowery and the Lower East Side, where we tasted knishes from a Jewish bakery that’s over 100 years old. In each neighborhood we learned about the lives of African, Irish, Chinese, Italian and Jewish immigrants in NYC, their trials and triumphs moving to a new home and how they in turn shaped the city and the country.

Finishing off our tour at a German beer garden, we hope the interns got a chance to see and appreciate some of the many iconic neighborhoods New York has to offer. At the very least they certainly got plenty to eat!

Enjoying Sake Once Again!

On April 11th, members from Quantbot attended the annual Joy of Sake event at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Members got the opportunity to try traditional and new types of sake along with some amazing food from local NYC restaurants. They all had a great time at the event and can't wait to attend next year.

Squash is Back!

On July 13, Quantbot had our first squash night since 2019 at Open Squash. With such a wide range of experience, we luckily had professional trainers coaching us through the basics. We love friendly competition and playing squash was no exception! In the end, we had a great time and are already looking forward to our next squash night.

Let the coaching start!
Trying it out
Going for it!

Quantbot Intern Game Night

Last week, the new Quantbot office hosted a game night for the first time. Employees and interns enjoyed a night of pizza and poker, with some FIFA thrown in on the side. It was a great event getting to mingle with our interns while also enjoying some fun competition. We are already looking forward to planning our next game night as the summer days continue.

Just some of our NY interns!
FIFA time!

Did Someone Say the Joy of Sake?

It’s the most sake-iest time of the year. Quantbot once again enjoyed delicious food, a preponderance of sake, and wonderful cocktails (sake in a negroni, who knew?!) at the annual Joy of Sake on Friday, June 16th. Luckily many of our summer interns had the opportunity to come, along with many of the yearly regulars. We love attending this event every year and can't wait for the next. Kanpai!

Spin it to Win it

Last night, our Quantbot interns headed to Spin to attend Schonfeld's Farewell Intern Event. With internship projects slowly wrapping up, it was a great opportunity for our interns to hang out and engage in friendly ping-pong competition with interns from Schonfeld and other quant groups before they all head back to their respective campuses this month. There was an informal tournament, and one of our interns was on the winning team! It was a fun night and we thank Schonfeld for inviting us.

Quantbot and the Squash

Last Wednesday the company (interns included!) rolled into the Princeton Club in NYC for spirited games of squash and ping pong. Bouncing between racket, paddle and plates of food we had fun learning how to play squash, and watching the more competitive of us challenge each other to games. After a brief intro lesson to squash, we got into the swing of things and played games with gusto. Our interns took this chance to play and chat with others in the company, and even got some points against our more experienced players! All of us had a ball and we're ready to have another whack at it soon!
