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.
More photos from last night can be viewed here.
To continue our yearlong celebration of all things Jane Jacobs, we have rounded up a list of different blog posts and other Jane Jacobs resources from the GVSHP website. Check them out below!
