Walking Tour: Jane Jacobs and the Future of New York: Forest Hills: Garden City in the City
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.

Recently ranked the no. 1 "cottage community" in the U.S. by Cottage Living magazine, Forest Hills Gardens exemplifies the "garden city" planning that Jane Jacobs criticized. But are there also Jacobsean virtues to greater Forest Hills?
Leader: Francis Morrone, architectural historian.
