Walking Tour: Jane Jacobs and the Future of New York: LOMEX Remembered
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.
Imagine it, an elevated eight-lane highway slicing through the heart of SoHo, Little Italy, and the Lower East Side. Walk the proposed route, visiting sites and structures associated with Jane Jacobs, Robert Moses, and the events that led to its demise.
Leader: Matt Postal architectural historian.
