The Commons: The Heart of New York City

Janes Walk

Led By Abby Suckle, President, AND Kritika Dhanda, cultureNOW

The Commons has effectively been America’s town square since the Dutch landed. Virtually every major event of local, national and global significance has played out in some way on this stage. This tour captures the multiple and overlapping stories that are woven throughout our city’s life. It takes a look at the issues that New Yorkers were preoccupied with and how they solved them from politics and religion to art and culture.
