Remembering Jane Jacobs

As news of Jane Jacobs' death spreads across the Internets, we offer a couple of links that pay homage, tribute, and respect to that great lady of contemporary urban planning, and we will overlook the fact that she despised LA:

  • Michael Blowhard's recent intro to the woman and her works.
  • James Kunstler, of Clusterfuck Nation fame, interviewed her back in 2000.
  • She was the 'talk of the town' a couple of years ago in the New Yorker.
  • That should be enough to get you started on your Jane Jacobs primer. You will be tested on this in a future pop quiz.
