FIRST TERTULIA: Friday, November 8, 2019 from 6-8 PM
Professor Joanna Lombard presents:
“The Death and Life of Great American Cities”
by Jane Jacobs
LOCATION: The Bride’s Cottage on Coral Way
Hosted by Laura Yusko
Sponsored by Mauricio Barba of ONE Sotheby’s
The physical address of the event will be provided in a confirmation email to your paid RSVP.
Since its first publication in 1961, ‘The Death and Life of Great American Cities” has become the standard against which all books about urban planning are compared. In prose of outstanding immediacy, Jane Jacobs writes about what makes streets safe or unsafe; about what constitutes a neighborhood, and what function it serves within the larger organism of the city; about why some neighborhoods remain impoverished while others regenerate themselves. She writes about the salutary role of funeral parlors and tenement windows, the dangers of too much development money and too little diversity. Compassionate, bracingly indignant, and always keenly detailed, Jane Jacobs’s monumental work provides an essential framework for assessing the vitality of all cities.
