Death and Life of Inglewood tour - May 9

Postby newsposter » Mon May 04, 2009 1:19 pm

Inspired by last week's Jane's Walks, The Death and Life of Inglewood is another walk offered at 10 am on Saturday May 9, duration 1.5-2 hours. The walk starts at Bite Groceteria, 1212 9th Avenue SE.

The walk is conducted by Inglewood community president and professional urbanist Gian-Carlo Carra. GCC grew up in Greenwich Village, NY, the site of Jane Jacobs battle against freeway advocate Robert Moses. Inglewood is a community that fought off City freeway plans and saved itself in the early 70s - just as Greenwich Village did in the previous decade. Come walk through Inglewood and explore how the community's understanding of itself has shaped its urbanism...
