Two Janes and a Walk a great success

On Sunday, over 50 people came out to enjoy the Mother's Day sunshine at the future site of the National Public Housing Museum to learn about the legacies of Jane Jacobs and Jane Addams. With coffee and cookies from Scafuri Bakery across the street, tour and walk participants heard about the Little Italy neighborhood, its history of ongoing redevelopment and the debates which have shaped this neighborhood on the local and national scale.

Starting at the Museum building at 1322 W. Taylor St., after a brief tour of the Museum's standing exhibit, Collection, Building, Action., two groups walked over to Hull-House for an in-depth tour into the life and legacy of Jane Addams.

We look forward to participating in next year's Jane's Walk
