In 2007, she founded Civic Gaps, a New York think tank dedicated to studying empty or neglected spaces in the city. With support from the Ministry of Culture, she also founded the MOSIS Foundation, an urban planning think tank in Madrid that builds and tests models which strive to connect people and places through art. Leo earned a MA in architecture from Princeton and a PhD in philosophy and art from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. Rape New York is her first book in English.

Rape New York is an absolutely essential book that tells not just the story of Jana Leo's rape in her Harlem apartment and the legal aftermath - it is the story of the how the city fails to protect women, and how violent crime is perpetuated by negligence. Leo's writing is brave with emotional honesty, and her insights and analyses are revelatory. At times painful and scary to read, this is an important work with the potential to create positive change.
