Walking Tour: Jane Jacobs and the Future of New York: Her Village
In conjunction with a new exhibition, Jane Jacobs and the Future of New York, eight walking tours will take participants to places associated with Jane Jacobs’ life and work and to communities that illustrate her planning principles — or call them into question. This is the first.
No place is more closely associated with Jane Jacobs and her perceptive writings than Greenwich Village. Visit the sites and streets that inspired her ideas, with stops in Washington Square, at the West Village Houses, and at her Hudson Street home.
Leader: Matt Postal, architectural historian.
