We'll Miss You, Jane

Some sad news today: Jane Jacobs died.  With her 1961 book "The Death and Life of Great American Cities," laid the foundation for much that is right and good in sensible urban planning.   

As we consider the future of the Viaduct, perhaps we should ask, "WWJD -- What would Jane do?"

I saw that as well. She was a great influence on a lot of us, helping us see the value of the vibrant commons. It was good to see from the article in the NYT that she was a fiery activist as well.
