Jane Jacobs Rockapulco Neighborhood BikeTour
Depart 3PM
Location: Beach 59th Street Firehouse @ Rockaway Beach Blvd

This tour will be led by Jeanne DuPont, Director of the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance to explore the open space and neighborhoods along the east end of the Rockaway Peninsula. 

The event is in honor of urbanist Jane Jacobs, who said, “You’ve got to get out and walk.” She encouraged people to explore their neighborhoods and meet their neighbors.

The tour will explore the Far Rockaway Bungalow community history,  recent documentary and nomination by the NY Historic Districts Council to highlight this area in their "Six to Celebrate!" campaign for communities making a comeback in NYC.

We welcome your participation in this two hour bike tour of our neighborhood! We have a select number of bikes that can be loaned for this tour. Bikes are available on a first come first serve basis. Advanced registration required.
