Thank you Jane Jacobs

I had two articles in the hopper: the third anniversary of this blog and one slated for nine days from now — “Happy 90th Birthday, Jane Jacobs” to celebrate her inspiring work for healing and building big cities.

Jacobs, author of such pivotal works as The Death and Life of Great American Cities, died today.

Thanks for all you did. Your work is ours.

  1. I got Ms. Jacobs’ book in the mail about a month ago, with no explanation. It was sent to my name from Was that you who sent it?

    I haven’t read it yet, but intend to this summer. May she rest in peace.

  2. Yes. I thought it was illuminating about people’s need to participate and have privacy within civic life. Interesting ideas for ministry, in addition to city building.
