Jane's Walk Albany

Woodlawn Ave sidewalk perspective

We got an email from Yasmine, who's organizing a Jane's Walk in Albany this May (link added):

Jane's Walks are community led walking tours by anyone who would like to host one - inspired by Jane Jacobs. I am hoping to get a few of these going in Albany this year so I am looking for people or organizations who would like to host a walk and participate in the event. These walks happen all over the world so its a cool event that hopefully fosters some community and gets people out walking and talking. ...
Examples of walks hosted in other cities include tours of neighborhoods, parks, co-working spaces, historical sites, waterfronts areas, architecture, public art, wildlife, infrastructure, public transportation, environmental justice, technology centers, warehouses, or any part of the city that someone would like to highlight.

Yeah, there might be 1 or 2 or 10 or 100 possibilities for walks like that in Albany.

That first link above is the Albany Jane's Walk page and it includes contact info for getting in touch with Yasmine to organize a local walk.
