A Jane Jacobs Walk is a free neighborhood walking, biking, and/or transit tour that celebrates and investigates the people and places that make a city great. While most Jane Jacobs Walks—which take place around the world—are designed around a theme (architecture, local culture and history, city planning, local cuisine, mobility challenges, nature, etc.), most of all, a Jane Jacobs Walk is an opportunity to meet new people, and to have a great time. Check out this 2013 events page to find a walk/event happening near you. All events are free, and most take place the weekend around May 5 to coincide with Jacobs' birthday, but also happen other times of the year.
