DON'T MISS!: WALK THIS WAY!
New Yorkers can meet the streets under their feet this weekend when 70 walking tours honoring urban-planning activist Jane Jacobs cover neighborhoods in every borough tomorrow and Sunday. It’s free to take a Jane’s Walk with the Municipal Art Society of New York.
“[Jacobs] was a neighborhood advocate who took on Robert Moses,” says MAS president Vin Cipolla, who will serve as tour guide Sunday for part of the 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. walk along the entire length of Broadway from 240th Street to the bottom of Manhattan. Jacobs, he says, “stopped traffic from going through Washington Square Park. She helped us understand the value of New York neighborhoods and how people make cities great, not planners.”
Highlights include tomorrow’s 11 a.m. tour of Jacobs’ former Greenwich Village neighborhood and the 11 a.m. stroll through Harlem. For a complete schedule go to mas.org or call 212-935-3960.
