Jane Jacobs Round Up!

Jane Jacobs

Last night, Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, alongside the Neighborhood Preservation Center and Village Alliance, celebrated Jane Jacobs by hosting a trivia night about her life, work, and accomplishments. 

This event was part of the Jane Jacobs at 100, a collection of events this year in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Jane Jacobs’ birth.   The night was a success, with a large turnout to Burger Joint on 8th Street, and lovely raffle prizes supplied by local businesses.  MC Jim O’Grady helped everyone get into the spirit of the event with a little bit of humor, including a last minute costume change to the likeness of the event’s namesake.
