200+ Free NYC Walking Tours for Jane's Walk Weekend
NEW YORK, April 28, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — On May 5-7, thousands of New Yorkers will explore their city in honor of urban activist Jane Jacobs. Jane’s Walk NYC, hosted by the Municipal Art Society of New York (MAS), is an annual weekend celebration featuring 200+ free “walking conversations” throughout the five boroughs, led by local experts who care deeply about their neighborhoods.
In 2017, Jane’s Walks can introduce you to a 1906 movie studio that made Brooklyn the brief capital of silent film, a seedy Manhattan hotel where Woody Guthrie wrote This Land Is Your Land, a vast glacial forest hiding in Queens, a Bronx street modeled on the Champs-Élysées, a Himalayan architectural enclave in Staten Island, and more.
