What Would Jane Do Two?

Janes Walk

Led By John Massengale, Chair, CNU NYC AND Camille Cortes

“Streets and their sidewalks, the main public places of a city, are its most vital organs. Think of a city and what comes to mind? Its streets. If a city’s streets look interesting, the city looks interesting; if they look dull, the city looks dull.” — Jane Jacobs, The Death & Life of Great American Cities

There’s a revolution going on in how we use our streets, but the evolution of the revolution is slow. Complete Streets, Slow Streets, Open Streets—What Would Jane Do?

Please join John Massengale and Camille Cortes for CNU NYC’s fifth annual Jane’s Walk. We’ll look at the history of New York streets, see what Jane said about them, and include a discussion of Streets for People and Slow New York.

The walking tour will be wheelchair accessible.
