Take a Guided Walk Around Gramercy Park This Weekend--for Free!

Jane's Walk at Gramercy Park May 5

For two days this weekend, New York City will be celebrating the legacy of activist-urbanist Jane Jacobs (who has been called “the apostle of livable cities”) with more than a hundred free walking tours exploring the many neighborhoods that make the city what it is. From Downtown Manhattan hotspots to the scenic locales of the Upper West Side, there are a lot of tours to choose from, and these free walks are a perfect way to explore a neighborhood with a guide who you can safely expect to be well versed with the city and its history.
