Jane Jacobs became one of America's most famed urbanists after preventing highways from carving up Manhattan and authoring "The Death and Life of Great American Cities". Few have been so central to our understanding of why walkable neighborhoods are important and how they are formed. Every spring, people around the nation host "Jane's Walks" in her honor. This year, the Urban Phoenix Project is teaming up with Local First Arizona's For(u)m to lead our 8th annual "Jane's Walk: Phoenix". We will be getting back to the basics, discussing Jane's four Generators of Diversity and her concept of Sidewalk Ballet as we stroll down 2nd Avenue from the Roosevelt Neighborhood to the Downtown Core. Meet at the roundabout @ Portland & 2nd Ave to start the walk. The walk will end at a local watering hole to give us an opportunity to continue the conversation.
