For 10 years, NYU Gallatin Professor Louise Harpman has led the BIG WALK, a free all-day tour that takes students, faculty, staff, alumni, and all other interested parties out to explore New York City’s most notable streets and landmarks.
The 2021 BIG WALK led participants across Governors Island to visit locations such as the May Room, the New York Virtual Volcano Observatory, and Fort Jay. Previous walks have taken urban enthusiasts to areas including Roosevelt Island, the full length of Broadway, the Hudson waterfront, Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood, and the Queens neighborhoods of Jackson Heights and Long Island City.
The 2021 BIG WALK was co-sponsored by the Urban Democracy Lab, Gallatin WetLab, openEARTHstudio, and the Gallatin Design Collective.
