Happy Friday! Today is Savannah Guthrie’s final day of guest host. Through 9 games, $202,085 has been raised for the Bowery Mission! Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category New York City) for Friday, June 25, 2021 (Season 37, Game 195):
Bright new lighting installed in 1880 on a street that crosses Manhattan diagonally led to this 3-word nickname
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Nikkee Porcaro, an educational consultant & tutor originally from Lebanon, New Jersey
|Austin Weiss, a pediatrician from San Diego, California
|Arman Ramnath, a law student from Columbus, Ohio (1-day total: $19,205)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Arman picked up a win yesterday after being the only player to get Final Jeopardy! correct. A game’s experience on the signalling device should help him defend his title against Austin and Nikkee.
Today’s Clue of the Day for the Alexa sweepstakes: AMERICAN FACTORY: A 120-foot-tall baseball bat stands outside the Kentucky factory of this sports equipment brand
Clue of the Day correct response: What is Louisville Slugger?
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to. When wearing a mask, ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2021 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
Electric lighting, when it was installed on Broadway in 1880, allowed for increased nighttime safety in New York City; people were no longer forced inside by the darkness. The city’s famed theatre district, also now able to illuminate its theatre marquees, added to the brightness. The nickname “Great White Way” to refer to Broadway dates to 1902 and the New York Evening Telegram.
Also, interestingly, because the road predates the New York City grid system—it originated as a Wickquasgeck trail on the island—some of the intersections are at unusual angles. This has led to architecture such as the Flatiron Building at Broadway, Fifth Avenue, and East 22nd Street.

- The $2,300 Nikkee left on the table on Daily Double 2 certainly would have come in handy in Final. Had she bet even $900 more, it would have taken the game from a two-thirds game to a crush game—which would have given her victory after the Triple Stumper final.
