ERFA’s Lisa Mercurio Leads a Jane’s Walk:
Each year, the Municipal Art Society is the local organizer of “Jane’s Walk,” a three-day event that honors the legacy of urban activist Jane Jacobs with hundreds of walking tours in over 180 cities across the globe. This year, ERFA’s Lisa Mercurio has generously volunteered to lead a Jane’s Walk of our neighborhood.
The walk is entitled, “Historic Sutton Place Clashes with Billionaire’s Row. WWJD: What Would Jane Do? See Why City History, Megatowers and Residential Neighborhoods Don’t Mix.”
When: Saturday, May 7th, from 10 am -11 am.
Where: Meet at this small Privately Owned Public Space (POPS), a beautifully landscaped park between 400 and 410 E. 59th St. The tour will continue on Foot
It will highlight our community’s struggle to maintain our unique character in the face of oversized and unwanted development. The meeting place is between 400 and 410 E. 59th St., a pretty, privately-owned public space between First and York Avenues. You can see the walk’s details and sign up to join the walk right here. To RSVP, simply create a login on the Jane’s Walk site and click the “I’m going” button next to the event’s date and time.
Spread the word. Get your neighbors and friends to come along as well. See you there!
