Walkspan is excited to announce that we will be leading our first Jane’s Walk in New York City this year. For those who do not know, Jane’s Walk is an event inspired by Jane Jacobs, an activist who greatly influenced urban renewal and city planning. These walks are an active memorial to Jane’s work and usually revolve around topics that identify with her ideals.
Our walk will be focused on addressing the quality of sidewalks in Greenwich Village, which is where Jane Jacobs lived during the early parts of her career. We will be using our walkability app to point out different attributes of the sidewalks and discuss what makes a sidewalk more walkable than others. Our CEO and founder, Bernardita Calinao, will be leading the walk along with our GIS Specialist, Marie Rusin. The walk will start at Abingdon Square Park and you can find them holding a Jane’s Walk Flag that will also have our Walkspan logo on it. Click here if you want to attend. The title of our walk is “Addressing the Quality of Sidewalks.” We look forward to seeing you there!
