DANBURY JOINS INTERNATIONAL “URBAN ENTHUSIASTS”

WITH JANE JACOBS WALK ON SUNDAY, MAY 3RD

Jane Jacobs (b. May 4, 1916 – d. 2006) was an urbanist and activist whose writings championed a fresh, community-based approach to city building. She had no formal training as a planner, and yet her 1961 treatise “The Death and Life of Great American Cities” introduced ground-breaking ideas about how cities function, evolve and fail. Jane Jacobs Walk is an international program of the Center for the Living City, a nonprofit organization created by people who knew Jane Jacobs. Like Park(ing) Day, the idea came about to promote community pride, concern, and engagement where people live, work, learn, and play. The 2-mile walk throughout CityCenter, on Sunday May 3rd, will last about two hours and promises hidden treasures, historic notes, tasty bites, and friendly chat.
