Jane Jacobs Centennial Pub Crawl – May 4, 2016

Under the arch
ON THE CENTENNIAL of Jane Jacobs’ birthday on May 4, 1916, CNU NYC and The 555 held a pub crawl in Greenwich Village, a crucial character in The Death and Life of Great American Cities. Starting at Washington Square—where Saint Jane was perhaps the first person other than President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to stop Robert Moses—we worked our way to 555 Hudson Street and the nearby White Horse Tavern. Thanks again to Fairfax & Sammons (Ann and Richard) for letting us stop at their wonderful house and regaling us with tales of the Village.
