NEW YORK, April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On May 1-3, thousands of New Yorkers will walk the city's streets in honor of urban activist Jane Jacobs.  Jane's Walk NYC, hosted by the Municipal Art Society of New York (MAS), is an annual weekend-long celebration featuring 200+ free "walking conversations" throughout the five boroughs, led by urban enthusiasts and local experts who care deeply about their neighborhoods.

All of the MAS-sponsored walks combine the simple act of exploring neighborhoods with personal observations, local history, and civic engagement, reflecting Jacobs' urging that a city's health is dependent on having many "eyes on the street."  A typical walk is 90 minutes and is free and open to the public.

The full list of tours is available online at the MAS Jane's Walk NYC portal, including:
