Take an epic three-mile walk bookended by two iconic New York public spaces: Times Square and the High Line. Along the way, we’ll highlight public plazas, safer street crossings, transit corridors and protected bike lanes—all situated in the midst of New York City’s unique architecture. We’ll stroll past the house where Jane Jacobs wrote The Death and Life of Great American Cities and end with refreshments at Gansevoort Plaza.
Transportation Alternatives is working to revitalize New York City’s neighborhoods and restore a vibrant culture of street life. This walk features some of the many communities where T.A. advocacy brings safe and healthy streets for all.
