Walking in the City with Jane Book PDF Online
How one committed woman changed the way we think about cities. Jane Jacobs was always a keen observer of her community. When she moved to New York City and began to explore it, she figured out that, just like in nature, the city was an ecosystem. And all its different parts — from sidewalks and parks, to stores and, of course, people — were necessary to keep the city healthy and thriving. So, when urban planner Robert Moses wanted to build highways that would destroy neighborhoods — the lifeblood of New York — Jane fought back. And won! Kids will be inspired to notice the “sidewalk ballet” around them and to protect what makes their communities — and their cities — great!
