Join us on a walking conversation with Seven Canyons Trust and the Jordan River Commission as we explore, reconnect, and reimagine our hidden waterways at the nearby Three Creeks convergence. 

We will walk the route where Red Butte, Emigration, and Parley's creeks flow underneath our urban infrastructure and into the convergence where they reach the confluence of the Jordan River. Here we will explore and reimagine the future of the site and the opportunities for it to become Three Creeks Park. 

This event is part of a national week of action run by the US Department of Arts and Culture(USDAC). The USDAC is the nation's newest people-powered department, founded on the truth that art and culture are our most powerful and under-tapped resources for social change. Radically inclusive, useful and sustainable, and vibrantly playful, the USDAC aims to spark a grassroots, creative change movement, engaging millions in performing and creating a world rooted in empathy, equity, and social imagination.

    Sacramento, California: East Sacramento's 38th Street

    1:00 PM13:00

    Sacramento, California: East Sacramento's 38th Street

      East Sacramento  was once served by PG&E streetcars that ran down J Street, turning south at 46th Street. By the time this photo was taken circa 1945 they turned around and returned from this point, but until the mid-1930s they ran south through East Lawn Cemetery, zig-zagged past the Coloma School in Elmhurst and stopped at the rear entrance to the California state fairgrounds. Residents of 38th Street could easily reach the fairgrounds or downtown Sacramento on the #3 streetcar until it stopped running in 1946.

Residents of 38th Street could easily reach the fairgrounds or downtown Sacramento on the #3 streetcar until it stopped running in 1946.

    This tour explores a portion of East Sacramento, one of Sacramento’s earliest streetcar suburbs, notable for its architectural beauty and landscape design. The stories of some of the original inhabitants of this East Sacramento tract will be shared, and the architectural styles of the neighborhood discussed. Tour led by Preservation Sacramento’s East Sacramento Subcommittee.

    Jane Jacobs Walk and Jane Jacobs Roll are part of a continent-wide series of walks and bike rides based on the principles of Jane Jacobs, author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities. Written in an era when American cities promoted the suburb and the automobile, turning their backs on downtowns and older neighborhoods, her work changed the way American planners thought about cities. It is widely read today by modern urban planners, promoting sidewalks, parks, mixed use, residential density, local economies and walkability. 

    Part history tour, part urban planning discussion, Sacramento will host five Jane Jacobs Walks and one “Roll” bike ride. These tours explore how Sacramento’s city neighborhoods function for pedestrians and cyclists, residents and businesses, public transit and cars (or, in some cases, not.) All tours are free and open to the public.

    Cambridge, MA: Considering Change Afoot in Kendall Square

    Cambridge, MA: Considering Change Afoot in Kendall Square

    This year’s walk will take a look at upcoming development in part of the Kendall Square neighborhood in east Cambridge, which is bounded by the Charles River, MIT, a large land parcel where the federal government in 1964 erected the Volpe Building for its NASA space program, and more recent tech industry and hotels. Conceived when Kendall Square was a forlorn urban renewal site, the Volpe Building is now obsolete and may be demolished to make way for a new federal transportation building exempt from local regulations. MIT has just released plans for developing its campus alongside and to the south of the square. Residents in the surrounding neighborhoods, comprised of small businesses and residential streets, want a say in the area’s redevelopment.

    Lunch to follow at the Meadhall restaurant, at the corner of Broadway and Ames Street, where those who wish may continue conversation and purchase lunch.
    To help us consider and converse about issues raised by these projects, we will hear from the City of Cambridge’s recently retired director of urban design Roger Boothe, Charles Sullivan from the Cambridge Historical Commission, and representatives from MIT and the East Cambridge Planning Team, a citizens’ group.

    Date: Saturday, May 9, 2015

    This walk will be first of two walks conducted on two consecutive days and in two different parts of Hyderabad city.  The idea is to take the same set of walkers through neighbourhoods that have evolved at different points in the history of the city. The places we will be visiting are Moghalpura in the erstwhile walled city of Hyderabad and Marredpally in Secunderabad. These walks are an attempt to understand the subtleties that make these neighbourhoods sustain in a certain way due to their own histories, cultures, demographics and spatial development.

    New York, NY: Teeming Tenements Transformed: A Lower East Side Walking Tour

    • 108 Orchard St NY, NY, 10002 United States (map)
    • Google Calendar ICS

    The guided tour will focus on the history and architecture of the Lower East Side with particular attention to the housing, institutions and businesses that were the center of immigrant life. The tour will highlight the impact of housing reforms reflected in the changes to the plans and features of tenements over time. “We will see pre-Old Law, Old Law and New Law tenements and look up at the elaborate terra cotta ornamentation that distinguishes many buildings,” said Mitchell Grubler, the tour’s leader.
     
    Although endangered, a number of blocks south of Delancey Street still retain the sense of place that would be familiar to our immigrant ancestors. “The Lower East Side is where millions of immigrants have taken their first steps in the New World on the road to the American Dream,” wrote Joyce Mendelsohn, tour co-leader and author of the definitive guidebook to the area, 'The Lower East Side Remembered and Revisited.' The structures that housed some of the institutions and businesses which served the multitudes of immigrants will also be highlighted. The tour will pass a Neo-Renaissance style school designed by architect, C.B.J. Snyder in 1897; the former Good Samaritan/Eastern District Dispensary built in 1890; the 12-story former Jarmulowsky Bank of 1911-12; as well as a number of other significant buildings.
