Shin-pei Tsay and Lisa Chamberlain have organized a gathering in memory of Jane Jacobs on the anniversary of her death, April 25:

Come raise a glass in honor of Jane Jacobs— a community activist who knew when to don the white gloves, when to get arrested, and when to unwind at the local pub. Speakers: Darren Walker, Vice President of the Rockefeller Foundation, will talk about the first annual Jane Jacobs medals to be announced in June. Alex Washburn, the first ever Chief Urban Designer for NYC’s Department of City Planning, will talk about urban design challenges in 21st century New York.
