Follow Judith Birdy, the President of the Roosevelt Island Historical Society on a Jane’s Walk that will go north through 1970’s new town to discover the history of the island, and learn how it has changed from an island of institutions to a residential community. Learn about future plans for the island, including a new university science campus. This is a great Walk for those wishing for a moderate length walk (this walk will cover approximately 12 blocks).
