Jane’s Walk

The great observer of cities, Jane Jacobs, was also a prodigious walker. She wrote disparagingly about non-pedestrian traffic in The Death and Life of Great American Cities: “When distance and convenience sets in; the small, the various and the personal wither away.” Jane’s Walk was founded in Toronto as a way to activate Jacobs’s get-out-and-go attitude, inviting strangers on citizen-led expeditions of their neighbourhoods. Past walks included unusual tours of local convenience stores, the Leslie Street Spit and urban garden walls.
