Jane Jacobs: Jane's Walk around the World


Posted by nik'smomStaff on April 04, 2011

Hello all,

I would like to let our IgoUgo readers and members know about "Jane's Walk" and hope, if you do participate, you will followup back to IgoUgo with pics and stories about a Jane's Walk in your area. Here is the press release from the Municipal Art Society here in New York:

Jane's Walk: Join Thousands Around the World on May 7 - 8
With the 50th anniversary of the publication of Jane Jacobs' groundbreaking book, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, MAS is proud to coordinate Jane's Walk in New York City. The walks are part of an international celebration of neighborhoods and streets as experienced by those who live there. Walks are already scheduled in Wuhan, China, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Berlin, Germany—just to name a few. Bring your love and knowledge of your own neighborhood, your favorite street or public space to host a walk in the spirit of Jane Jacobs.

If you would like to host a walk or for more information about "around-the-world" locations, check the website: http://www.janeswalk.net/
