Jane’s Walk NYC

May 4, 2013 - May 5, 2013


On Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5, thousands of New Yorkers will come together for Jane’s Walk NYC – a weekend series of 100+ FREE guided walks (and bike rides!) throughout New York’s five boroughs. Registration is NOT required.  Whether you choose to stroll through neighborhoods you love or discover new neighborhoods you’ve never visited, you’ll enjoy this international program created to commemorate the life and legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs. Scroll down to view the walk schedule. For more information: http://mas.org/programs/janeswalknyc/

  • Your walk must be at least 30 minutes.
  • Plan to arrive a few minutes early for your walk at the designed meeting location.
  • Meeting places can be located using Google Maps, and the MTA Trip Planner is helpful for transit information.
  • All Jane’s Walks NYC will proceed rain or shine.
  • Check your walk listings before departing on Saturday and Sunday in case there are any last-minute changes.
  • Join multiple walks in one day and throughout the weekend.
  • Ask questions and offer insights–Jane’s Walk works best when there is a friendly dialogue throughout.  Introduce yourself to other walkers, volunteers and hosts. Be curious! Everyone hosting a Jane’s Walk is a volunteer and passionate about the city we love.
  • Follow the action and join the conversation on Twitter using #janeswalknyc.  Also, be sure to take pictures and upload them to our Flickr group, and share your photos and thoughts on our Facebook page.
  • Wear sensible shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Jane’s Walks vary–some are just one building’s interior; while some are a solid two hours and 40 blocks long.
  • Bring friends and family to enjoy this special weekend!
