Meet Me Downtown: Phoenix Alleys & Public Art Walking Tour
Meet Me Downtown Phoenix (MMDT) brings people of all ages to downtown Phoenix for a weekly social walk/run, engaging individuals and businesses in a vibrant event that showcases downtown Phoenix as a prime location for healthy activities.

Special for this year's Phoenix Urban Design Week, MMDT participants can journey through downtown alleys and plazas, some that date as far back as 1885... to today. Jeff Sherman, Phoenix native and downtown advocate, has researched downtown Phoenix history from this particular vantage point: alleys, dark and not so dark!

Here is an Interactive Google map link for the walk and historical overview pictures: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1E92-ZoiDF5Eey8oP-y-mkecBBTQ&usp=sharing

As this is an alleys and public space discussion, here are some good references:
