Join us on a 2-part walk covering the length of Broadway as part of MAS’ Jane’s Walks Weekend on Saturday May 4th (Bowling Green to 72nd St) and Sunday May 5th (Van Cortlandt Park to 72nd St).

A notable group of artists, scientists, cultural and community representatives will discuss a variety of issues along the corridor that demonstrate how sustainability can be made tangible through the arts.

BROADWAY: 1000 Steps is a project by Mary Miss/City as Living Laboratory to turn the oldest avenue of NYC into a “green corridor” where insights into our surroundings – from streets and buildings, to transportation and waste, to energy and the climate – can be made apparent and accessible at ground level.
