Jane Jacobs was a renowned urbanist who championed a community-based approach to city building. Jane moved to Toronto in 1968 after living many years in Greenwich Village and lived in the Annex house behind this sign from 1971 until her death in 2006. In 2007 a group of her friends started Jane's Walk to celebrate her ideas and legacy by getting people out exploring their neighbourhoods and meeting their neighbours. That first year in Toronto there were 27 tours and by this year there were tours in 85 cities in 19 countries around the world! The mural I showed on Monday was viewed during one of the walks.
