Jane Jacobs was a highly influential American-Canadian journalist, author, theorist, and activist. Her groundbreaking work left a lasting impact on urban studies, sociology, and economics. In her renowned book, The Death and Life of Great American Cities (1961), Jacobs challenged the notions of "urban renewal" and "slum clearance," arguing that they failed to address the genuine needs of urban residents. Her insightful perspective continues to shape our understanding of cities and their communities.
This portrait of Jane Jacobs, Chairman of the Commission to save the West Village, holds up documentary evidence at a press conference at Lions Head Restaurant at Hudson & Charles Streets.
It looks great and arrived quickly!
