Jane’s Walk NYC 2019

Celebrating Jane Jacobs and New York City

On May 3-5, thousands of New Yorkers took to the streets to celebrate Jane Jacobs and the city we love.

This annual event held the first weekend in May is a global festival of free, volunteer-led walking conversations inspired by urban activist Jane Jacobs. During Jane’s Walk weekend, the simple act of exploring the city is enhanced with personal observations, local history, and civic engagement. Jane’s Walk encourages people to share stories about their neighborhoods, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and connect with visitors and neighbors alike. Take a look at walks from the 2019 Jane’s Walk weekend below, and save the date for Jane’s Walk next year, May 1-3, 2020.
