Submit Your Idea For This Year’s Jane’s Walk By Friday, March 31st, Led By You With Guidance From NYC’s Municipal Art Society Team


One Week Left to Submit your Jane’s Walk!

Help us make this year’s Jane’s Walk NYC festival (May 5-7) our most engaging and exciting yet! The deadline to submit your walk idea is Friday, March 31.

We’re delighted that the 2023 roster will feature a variety of in-person and virtual formats, including in-person guided group walks, self-guided walks, virtual talks, social media activations, and more.

While you can lead a walk about almost any topic under the (NYC) sun, here are a few ideas to help inspire you:

  • Craft a historical overview of your favorite New York City architectural, cultural, or advocacy movement through a guided-group walk
  • Provide a break from screen time by encouraging people to explore the great outdoors of the city with a self-guided walk, run, or bike ride
  • Cultivate cross-borough conversation on an advocacy topic by hosting a Zoom panel with fellow advocates from across the city

About Jane’s Walk

Jane’s Walk was founded as a way 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 over 200 cities worldwide, 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.

Municipal Arts Society Of New York

The Municipal Art Society of New York (MAS) lifts up the voices of the people in the debates that shape New York’s built environment and leads the way toward a more livable city from sidewalk to skyline. MAS envisions a future in which all New Yorkers share in the richness of city life—where growth is balanced, character endures, and a resilient future is secured. Over more than 125 years of history, our advocacy efforts have led to the creation of the New York City Planning Commission, Public Design Commission, Landmarks Preservation Commission, and the Tribute in Light; the preservation of Grand Central Terminal, the lights of Times Square, and the Garment District; the conservation of more than 50 works of public art; and the founding of such civic organizations as the Public Art Fund, the New York Landmarks Conservancy, P.S. 1, the Historic Districts Council, the Park Avenue Armory Conservancy, and the Waterfront Alliance.
