Jane's Walk Festival
Friday, May 6, 2016 through Sunday, May 8, 2016
Held annually in over 180 cities across the globe during the first weekend of May, Jane’s Walk is an international movement that honors legendary urban activist Jane Jacobs. MAS is the local organizer of Jane’s Walk NYC, which has grown from 23 walks into the largest Jane’s Walk festival in the world. In 2015, Jane’s Walk NYC featured 211 walks. This year, in celebration of what would have been Jane Jacobs’ 100th birthday, MAS is aiming for the biggest and best Jane’s Walk yet. Reporter Jim O'Grady and On The Media co-host Brooke Gladstone will join MAS this year to lead a walk in Prospect Park as Jane Jacobs and Robert Moses in a friendly debate about their views of the workable city.
