- •📚: The Death and Life of Great American Cities by Jane JacobsJane Jacob's 100th birthday was last week, so she's been getting much more attention than usual this week. I think everyone should read this book because it will truly make you appreciate where you live. Jacob's legacy has been co-opted by new urbanists and transformed into a preservation/anti development mindset, when all she did was look at and analyze her home (Greenwich Village).
