Jane’s Walk NYC

  • 200+ Free Walking Tours Celebrating New York City
On May 1-3, thousands of New Yorkers will go on 100+ 200+ free guided walks that celebrate New York City’s diverse neighborhoods.

Part of an international movement, Jane’s Walk NYC gets thousands of New Yorkers out to our streets, to engage with the 8.5 million stories in our city.

The topics covered are endless! As the L.A. Times puts it, “learn about Central Park’s arches, Little Italy’s Mafia ties and a history of gay bars.” About.com has the run-down of why it’s named Jane’s Walk. And the Bowery Boys note that “you could literally fill your entire weekend with activities.”

Four steps for a perfect weekend:
  1. Take a look at all 100+ 200+ walks below
     
  2. Print out our guides to the weekend to use on the go!
    Friday | Saturday | Sunday
     
  3. Connect to your fellow New Yorkers with #JanesWalkNYC
    (On Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram).
     
  4. Cancel all your other plans for May 1-3!

Some notes: Walks are rain or shine. There are no advance registrations – just show up! And, it’s the weekend, so be sure to check MTA.info for travel updates.
