Time Traveling on West 100th St.

Janes Walk


Led By Tom Fedorek

Within the jumble of buildings on a typical crosstown street, one can read the story of a city ever-transforming city – a narrative of politics, economic ups and downs, demographic shifts and evolving social values. This one-hour, four-block walk traces a single street’s transformation from an 18th century Arcadia to its emergence as a residential community in the 19th to the urban renewal initiatives of Robert Moses in the 20th and the Bloomberg era of the 21st.


4 block distance. The walk will not be wheelchair accessible. The walk will include stairs. Close to subway station (1, 2, 3 trains) and bus routes (M104, M5).
