A Stormy, Soaring Jane’s Walk Weekend

A little rain couldn't slow us down!

May 9, 2019

Last weekend, thousands of New Yorkers grabbed umbrellas and took to the streets in celebration of Jane Jacobs and the city we love. From Tottenville to Woodlawn, Coney Island to Riverside, this year’s festival offered more walks than ever before.

On behalf of all of us at MAS, thank you for making this year’s Jane’s Walk weekend one of the best yet! We hope the experience inspired you to lead your own walk next year. On that note, mark your calendars for May 1-3: Jane’s Walk 2020 will be here before you know it!

Check out photos from eight featured Jane’s Walks on our Flickr account →

We want to hear from you! Will you take a moment to fill out our survey and let us know how to improve Jane’s Walk for next year?

And don’t forget to send us your photos for the #JanesWalkNYC Photo Contest! Submissions are accepted until Friday, May 10, at 11:59 PM. Winners will receive tickets to the MAS Gala on May 30 and the Summit for New York City on October 25.
