This walk, beginning at the former home of Jane Jacobs, will discuss what could have happened to the area if she had not defeated Robert Moses in building a Lower Manhattan Expressway, urban density and diversity (which Jacobs was highly in favor of), and will look at the type of “sidewalk ballet” that Jacobs viewed from her window.
