Jane Jacobs - 1916 - 2006
The author of the seminal The Death & Life of Great American Cities, passed away today. Leaving a legacy of simple yet conscise work. Although I might not agree w/ all her ideas, she stood for something that affected each and every one of us that has lived in a city. If interested, you can read more about her here.rip"She was an unlikely intellectual warrior, a theorist who opposed most theories, a teacher with no teaching job and no university degree, a writer who wrote well but infrequently."
