Did you miss our Jane’s Walk during the weekend-long celebration of cities? Don’t worry, it’s been made permanently available online! Our Walk can be watched here.
Jane’s Walks, an international celebration of cities, was back in full force in 2022 after moving virtually to COVID. Put together by the Municipal Arts Society in NYC, Jane’s Walks are volunteer led tours, both virtual and in-person that dive into topics related to urban planning, city life and culture, and other topics.
The NoHo BID was thrilled to host our first ever Jane’s Walk alongside NoHo resident, artist, author, and historian Joan Melnick. Learn more about Joan from our Spotlight on her here.
Our walk is being offered virtually, on-demand. This Walk is an expanded, guided presentation based on the material of Joan’s book, The Evolution of a Neighborhood. To buy a copy, email Joan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take a virtual, guided walk around the NoHo of the early 1800s, when it was home to American elites like the Astors. With Joan’s expertly-made, hand-produced renderings, you’ll be transported to the streets of NoHo, when it was NYC’s ritziest neighborhood. From there, we’ll explore the development and changes that led to one of the most celebrated artist communities in the country, to the neighborhood we have now.
