Jane’s Walk 2013

Jane’s Walk NYC

“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody”– Jane Jacobs, The Death and Life of Great American Cities.

On Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5, 2013 thousands of New Yorkers came together for Jane’s Walk NYC – an annual series of 100+ FREE guided walks (and bike rides!) throughout New York’s five boroughs. Registration is NOT required.  Whether you choose to stroll through neighborhoods you love or discover new neigborhoods you’ve never visited, you’ll enjoy this international program created to commemorate the life and legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs.

    • Arrive a few minutes early for your Jane’s Walk at the designed meeting location.
    • Meeting locations can be located using Google Maps and the MTA Trip Planner is helpful for transit information.
    • All Jane’s Walks NYC will proceed rain or shine.
    • Check our Jane’s Walk listings before departing on Saturday and Sunday just in case there are any last-minute changes.
    • Why not join multiple walks in one day and throughout the weekend?
    • Ask questions and offer insights–Jane’s Walk works best when there is a friendly dialogue throughout. Introduce yourself to other walkers, volunteers and hosts. Be curious! Everyone hosting a Jane’s Walk is a volunteer and passionate about the city.
