Jane's Walk 2019

Join us for our second annual Jane's Walk. Once again, we'll be focusing on downtown Plattsburgh. Meet at 10 AM in front of City Hall on Saturday, May 4, 2018. The walk will last an hour. There are no stairs involved.

Sponsored by Friends of Saranac River Trail, the Downtown Walk is free.

Jane's Walks are inspired by the work of Jane Jacobs (Wikipedia article here)

Jane's book, The Death and Life of Great Amerian Cities has been a bible for people interested in the preservation and regeneration of neighborhoods in cities. Critical to her work is her admonition that people explore the cities they live in. The experts on a city are the people who live there. After her death, a number of groups around the world decided to dedicate the first weekend of May (her birthday) to urban walks on which people look and listen to their neighborhoods. (There's more information on Jane's Walks and information on cities around the world — including Plattsburgh — that are participating on the web here.
