Celebrating Jane Jacobs and New York City, May 3-9!

Throughout the challenges of the past year, many of us at MAS have found ourselves inspired in new and deeper ways by the mission of our annual Jane’s Walk festival. This volunteer-led celebration of urban life, inspired by Jane Jacobs, has always been a time to come together and share our love for this city.

Due to COVID-19, Jane’s Walk NYC has been reimagined to provide new ways to explore, share stories about the city, and connect with your fellow New Yorkers. From self-guided strolls to zoom talks to social media activations, there’s something for everyone to enjoy across the five boroughs. Jane’s Walks are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are required for live virtual activities. Although guided, in-person group walks must remain suspended this year due to COVID-19, we urge everyone taking a self-guided stroll to follow the latest safety protocols from federal, state, and local authorities.

The roster of Jane’s Walks is now available below, and we have made your search easy! Using the search bar or filters, you can select the walk type (an activity happening virtually or in real life, like a self-guided in-person walk), borough, theme, date, or on demand (content that you can access at any time).

Note that on-demand content will be released during the festival week.
