Celebrating NYC’s Heritage Roses and Community Gardens

Located in the center of Roger Morris Park, Morris-Jumel Mansion is part of the Heritage Rose District of NYC and surrounded by local community gardens. Join us to celebrate National Rose Month as we engage in a floral-themed conversation with Rosarian and master gardener Stephen Scanniello and photographer Anna Angelidakis, author of Rooted in the Hood: An Intimate Portrait of NYC’s Community Gardens.

Morris Jumel Mansion Jane’s Walk NYC 2021: Celebrate NYC Through Self-Guided Walks and Virtual Programs

 –

The annual Jane’s Walk festival is a volunteer-led celebration of urban life, inspired by Jane Jacobs, and it has always been a time for people to come together and share their love for New York City.

Due to COVID-19, Jane’s Walk NYC has been reimagined to provide new ways to explore, share stories about the city, and connect with your fellow New Yorkers. From self-guided strolls to zoom talks to social media activations, there’s something for everyone to enjoy across the five boroughs. Jane’s Walks are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are required for live virtual activities. Although guided, in-person group walks must remain suspended this year due to COVID-19, we urge everyone taking a self-guided stroll to follow the latest safety protocols from federal, state, and local authorities.

This year, Morris-Jumel Mansion is excited to present two self-guided walking tours which will be available for download beginning on May 3rd for the festival.

Visit the Municipal Art Society of New York’s website for a full listing of Jane’s Walk programs.
