Jane’s Walk Milwaukee
Organizers of the month-long event preview the different walks, vision of writer Jane Jacobs.
Jacobs, a resident of New York and later Toronto, presented a clear vision on what it takes to make a vibrant, safe city. Using her East Village neighborhood as a guidepost, she explored how bottom-up planning by citizens could result in cities that are safe for all ages, alive at all times of the day and enjoyable for all residents.
And while her seminal book and a number of subsequent works are now decades old, the ideas continue to be discussed today. Starting in 2007, citizens in Toronto began hosting annual Jane’s Walks to celebrate city life and the idea has spread to over 200 cities and 40 countries.
