Tracking East Village Green Infrastructure & Waterlines

Janes Walk

Led By Wendy Brawer AND Marco Lanier, Green Map System

Want to know more about the impact of water on a frontline community over time? Meet at the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) at noon before tracking the subterranean streams that crossed the historical salt marsh around Avenue C. Visit nearby installed and planned green infrastructure, too. Presented by Green Map NYC and MoRUS with special guest, LES Breathe, who will bring air quality and temperature sensors along for the walk. All ages welcome. At the 6th Street overpass we’ll decide whether to cross into the open section of East River Park or conclude back at MoRUS.

Part of Interference Archive’s Our Streets! Our City! Self-Determination & Public Space in NYC, an exhibition exploring collective and creative resistance used to reimagine public spaces and infrastructure; fight displacement; and transform urban planning processes.
