Janes Walk Title Square

Jane’s Walk NYC 2021 Starts

Happy Monday, friends of tiny urban devices, and those who were waiting for Jane’s Walk NYC 2021!

A happy reminder that starting today thousands of New Yorkers and visitors alike will take to the streets and tune in online for Jane’s Walk, which lasts between May 3-9.

We are hosting our own Jane’s Walk 2021 – Street Furniture: Where Policy Meets our Bodies:

Street Furniture: Where Policy Meets our Bodies

Municipalities are full of small bits of urban fabric which we almost never foreground, but are the manifestations of our public policy: street furniture. These bits of urbanity are the unsung heroes of city life.

We will be exploring Roosevelt Island for our Jane’s Walk NYC, with the walk hosted on Zoom, while we invite attendees to also go on a self-guided in-person walk wherever they are, starting wherever, and encounter pieces of street furniture. We can share what we are all are seeing, listening, hearing, and smelling with the group.
