Jane Jacobs Medal
The Jane Jacobs Medal was awarded annually to individuals whose work created new ways of seeing and understanding New York City, challenged traditional assumptions, and creatively used the urban environment to make New York City a place of hope and expectation. The Rockefeller Foundation awarded the medal. It was administered by MAS through a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation. The award was created in 2007.
