Center for the Living City



Jane Jacobs Walk is a program of the Center for the Living City.

In 2005, in collaboration with Jane Jacobs, a small group of accomplished urbanists founded The Center for the Living City to build on Ms. Jacobs’ work. The Center’s purpose is to enhance the understanding of the complexity of contemporary urban life and through it, promote increased civic engagement among people who care deeply for their communities.

The Center’s programming includes publishing What We See: Advancing the Observations of Jane Jacobs and sponsoring Jane Jacobs Walk. The Center for the Living City also sponsors symposia, exhibitions, fellowships, workshops and other community events.
