Since 2011, the Municipal Art Society has hosted Jane’s Walk NYC, a festival of volunteer-led “walking conversations” inspired by urban activist Jane Jacobs. Across nearly ten years and thousands of walks, they’ve taken to the streets on the first weekend in May to herald the spring, celebrate Jane Jacobs, and explore the city she loved so much. The very act of gathering together that was once central to the Jane’s Walk experience must be reimagined. But the spirit of Jane’s Walk was always about more than that.
