The best weekend all yearJoin us for 100+ free guided walks celebrating New York!

On May 1-3, Jane’s Walk NYC will get thousands of New Yorkers out to our streets on over 100 walks in all five boroughs – by far the biggest Jane’s Walk yet!

This year’s incredible line-up of free ‘walking conversations’ will take New Yorkers on a tour through some of the biggest battles facing the five boroughs, and the secret histories that helped make this the greatest city on earth.

Where will you walk this year?

Some suggestions:

These are just a few of the 100+ walks currently submitted!

So take a look at all the walks (and bike rides, beach outings, and street theatre). Lead a walk in your neighborhood. Talk to others on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with #JanesWalkNYC. And block off your calendars for next weekend – you won’t be able to fit it all in!

See you soon,
The Jane’s Walk Team at MAS
