Eleanor Roosevelt’s Queer Village

Janes Walk


Led By Chrisinda Lynch

It takes a village to raise one of our most influential First Ladies: Greenwich Village, that is. Even during her years in the White House, Eleanor Roosevelt maintained an apartment and a community in the Village: queer female activists who shaped and supported Eleanor’s political views and work. On this walk, you’ll see the buildings where Eleanor and her friends lived, and learn more about their lives in and out of the Village.


The walk will be about 1.5 miles across level sidewalks with no steps to navigate. The tour will begin near the 14th St 1, 2, 3 and E, D, F, M, L stations, and end near the West 4th A, C, E, B, D, F, M station.

Location Information

RSVP is required and capacity is limited. Meeting location, ending location, and directions will be provided via email before walk date.
