With pedestrian plazas and Play Streets creating space for neighbors to know one another and improved street designs allowing more New Yorkers to safely embrace neighborhood streets, much of T.A.’s work is inspired by Jane Jacobs, the late author of Death and Life of Great American Cities. In honor of international Jane Jacobs Walk Weekend, T.A. and our allies across the city are hosting a series of FREE walks through neighborhood streets transformed by T.A. advocacy to reflect her legacy.
