More exciting news to report: The Municipal Art Society NYC asked me to lead three tours this coming weekend as part of their Jane’s Walk NYC celebration. Jane’s Walks are given in cities all over the world from May 1-3 to commemorate Jane Jacobs, urban visionary and author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities. She is pictured above at the AGBANY Penn demolition protests in 1963.
Of course, my walks will focus on the demolition and remnants of Old Penn Station. These will be a little different from the tours we do in partnership with Untapped Cities, but still in the same spirit of Old Penn exploration. Click here for the info. There is no RSVP or ticketing required, all the walks are free. You just show up and look for the guy standing in front of the Penn Eagle holding a MAS plaque. We even have one this Friday at 1PM if you want to come by on your lunch hour.
If you plan on attending please let me know. I’d love to say hi and if I can hand deliver your McGrath print, that would be awesome! Also, if you’re interested in volunteering (mainly helping me check people in and holding MASNY plaques) let me know, it will get you into the Jane’s Walk NYC celebration at the White Horse Tavern this Sunday, May 3rd at 6:00pm.
In other news: If you haven’t reserved the performance date for your Kickstarter reward tickets please do so by clicking over and filling out the online form. Remember you have until May 15th before we open ticketing up to the general public.
I hope where ever you are, you’re enjoying a beautiful day.
