This walk will explore the neighborhood that sits at the edge of the Upper West Side and Morningside Heights, and, at appropriate sites, discussions will examine different elements of Jane Jacobs’ ideas which have transformed our thinking about cities. Walkers will explore these ideas in the context of this neighborhood’s history and how it developed.
