Jane Jacobs, dies at 89 on April 25th, 2006

My favourite author on urban planning and also of late, the economics of cities, has passed on. I only hope we can heed her writings and discover her teachings and see the world with such a liveable view. If you like the fact that there isn't a highway from Spadina to the Lakeshore and love the Annex community, thank her.
