Municipal Arts Society Jane's Walkers Tour Roosevelt Island Guided By Roosevelt Island Historical Society

Jane's Walkers Lining Up At RIHS Visitors Kiosk From Roosevelt Island Historical Society

As previously reported, Roosevelt Island was one of the sites for the Municipal Art Society's Jane Walk  last weekend.

Received this Jane's Walk report from the Roosevelt Island Historical Society:
At least 50 off-Island visitors attended the Roosevelt Island Historical Society's session of Jane's Walk. Prompted by an extensive mention in The New York Times, they sought an insider's view of the community, institutions and history of the Island.

Grouping themselves by interests, visitors assembled to listen and learn about Southpoint Park, Tram Plaza, Main Street and Lighthouse Park.

Informal discussions about the residential buildings, the history of the 19th and 20th Century social service institutions, the architecture and the community organizations that knit residents together ensued for 90-minutes.

The walks were led by Judith Berdy, President of the Roosevelt Island Historical Society, Deborah Dorff, Janet Falk and Francine Lange.
