Jane Jacobs Walk in North Beach

From No North Beach Dig:

The first Jane Jacobs walk in North Beach (as far as we know) will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 31, 2014. It starts at the Firemen statue in Washington Square Park, near the corner of Columbus Ave and Filbert St.

Liz Vasile will lead the walk but she won’t be doing all the talking. Join in and bring your own stories and observations. Feel free to come or leave at any point — see the walk route below. Following the walk, about 60–90 minutes, we will meet at Rogue Ales patio (corner of Union & Powell) for food, drink, and chat about what makes North Beach a really cool place.
