Jane’s Walk – King-Spadina: A work in progress

April 21 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Former Mayor Barbara Hall and urban designer Ken Greenberg explore the Two Kings, how it emerged, and the history of the area between Spadina and Portland. We end our walk at the TIFF Bell Lightbox Theater, just in time for the theatrical premier of Citizen Jane: Battle for the City, a new documentary about Jane Jacobs’ fight to save lower Manhattan.
