Take your eyes to the street May 6-8 for the sixth annual Jane’s Walk! Jane’s Walk NYC brings together thousands of New Yorkers for an annual weekend long festival of 200+ free volunteer-led neighborhood walking tours across all five boroughs. Each walk provides a unique snapshot of New York City, and an opportunity to celebrate its vibrant past, present, and future.
Held annually in over 180 cities across the globe during the first weekend of May, Jane’s Walk is an international movement that honors legendary urban activist Jane Jacobs. MAS is the proud local organizer of Jane’s Walk NYC, which has grown from 23 walks into the largest Jane’s Walk festival in the world! In 2015, Jane’s Walk NYC featured 211 walks.
This year, as we gear up for what would have been Jane Jacobs’ 100th birthday, we’re aiming for the biggest and best Jane’s Walk yet.
Interested in helping with Jane’s Walk? Sign up to be a volunteer on a walk! Volunteers help to manage the crowd, and document the walk through videos and photos. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
