Jane’s Walk NYC 2021 – Take the A Train!
Friday, May 7 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
As the longest line in the New York City subway system, the A train line runs 31 miles across three boroughs, and traverses diverse communities along the way. Join us online for a digital discussion to discover unique features of the line and the history of its construction, including the individuals who helped build it and stories about some of the communities it serves.
Registration for this public program is hosted by The Municipal Arts Society of New York.
Jane’s Walk was founded to celebrate the life and legacy of urban activist, Jane Jacobs, who believed in the power of individuals to influence their city. It now takes place in more than 200 cities worldwide during the first weekend in May each year, with Jane’s Walk NYC, presented by the Municipal Art Society of New York, as the largest of these festivals. What started as a handful of walks in 2011 has since grown into a weekend of collective neighborhood storytelling featuring hundreds of walks online and across all five boroughs (this year, the festival will run for a full week!)
