Jane's Walks in NYC today, tomorrow and Sunday
Jane Jacobs Walk is a program of the Center for the Living City, a nonprofit organization created by people who knew (urban activist) Jane Jacobs and were fortunate enough to call her a friend. As an organization we celebrate her life and legacy by helping people organize walks in their communities around the time of Jacobs’ birthday in early May and year round. (Jane Jacobs Walk)
