Jane’s Walk NYC on Urban Archive

Janes Walk

Led By MASNYC, Urban Archive, and a Variety of Cultural Organizations Across NYC!

Join MAS and Urban Archive, a technology nonprofit that promotes historical research and discovery, for a series of virtual Jane’s Walks! This year, we’re teaming up with cultural organizations across the city to reimagine the festival online. Click “Access Now” and take a walk with us to celebrate the spirit of New York without physically gathering. From Alphabet City Activism: A Look at 9th Street by the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space to Carnegie Libraries of Queens by Queens Library, there’s a range of stories and histories to explore.


Jane's Walk on Urban Archive can be accessed from any browser on a mobile, desktop, laptop, or tablet device. While some of the stories/walks can be experienced in person, none of them require readers to physically move with them to appreciate their histories.
