Before she moved to Toronto (our neighbour in the Annex!) and had a profound influence on our city's urban planning and civic consciousness, outspoken writer and activist Jane Jacobs stood up to the rapid urbanization in New York City. Her 1960 book The Death and Life of Great American Cities criticized modern planners reconfiguration of cities. In particular, Jacobs went head-to-head with power broker Robert Moses who was planning destroy the city's neighbourhoods in order to create expressways. Citizen Jane: Battle for the City follows the battle between Jacobs and Moses, her inspiring drive to fight for what is right against the rich and powerful, and her ideas on urban issues which are even more relevant today. ow.ly/Tp0n30aB2ii
