Honoring Jacobs’ Legacy and Building Community

Jane’sWalkUSA, a program of The Center For the Living City , is dedicated to honoring the legacy and ideas of urban activist and writer Jane Jacobs by facilitating free walking tours in neighborhoods throughout the country, in cities from Ankorage to Philadelphia.  These walks celebrate local history, bring people together, and invite participants to discover new ways to apply her insight to modern city life.

Most walks are scheduled for the first weekend in May (close to Jacob’s birthday, May 4th).   Check out this schedule to learn how to get involved and to find an event in a city near you!
