Walking Tour: Jane Jacobs and the Future of New York: Brooklyn Heights: America’s First Suburb
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.
Brooklyn Heights: America’s First Suburb
Jane Jacobs and Lewis Mumford both lived in Brooklyn Heights, New York City’s first historic district, at one time, and both found virtues in "New York’s first suburb."
Leader: Francis Morrone, architectural historian.
