Walking Tour: Jane Jacobs and the Future of New York: Greenpoint: Transforming a Working Class Haven
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.

Leader: Francis Morrone, architectural historian.
