200+ Free NYC Walking Tours for Jane’s Walk Weekend

Municipal Art Society Hosts Annual Tribute to Urban Activist Jane Jacobs

April 18, 2018

On May 4-6, thousands of New Yorkers will explore their city in honor of urban activist Jane Jacobs. Jane’s Walk NYC, hosted by the Municipal Art Society of New York (MAS), is an annual weekend-long celebration featuring 200+ free “walking conversations” throughout the five boroughs, led by urban enthusiasts and local experts who care deeply about their neighborhoods.

All of the walks combine the simple act of exploring neighborhoods with personal observations, local history, and civic engagement. A typical walk is 90 minutes and is free and open to the public, but space may be limited. Registrations are encouraged.

The full list of tours and registration is available online at www.mas.org/janeswalknyc.
