This Saturday from 11am-1pm, the Municipal Art Society is presenting a bus tour of Harlem with Peggy Shepard, winner of this year’s Jane Jacobs Medal for Lifetime Leadership, and Executive Director of Task Force member organization West Harlem Environmental Action (WeACT).
This tour will examine how noxious hazards such as garbage and bus depots — often place there by the city government — co-exist with some of the city’s cultural treasures, such as the museums and arts institutions of “El Barrio,” Marcus Garvey park and the new Harlem Waterfront Park.
Tickets are $25, or $20 for MAS members/students. Purhcase tickets online or call 212-935-2075. Meet at WE ACT offices 71 West 125th Street, #308, just east of Frederick Douglass Boulevard next to the Blimpie and Duane Reade stores.
