HiMY in The Annex in Toronto []

We here in The Annex neighbourhood in downtown Toronto where Jane lived have started a book of condolence which will be forwarded to her family.

Because you can't sign the book in person, you may leave any messages or memories at our Jane Jacobs online memorial weblog:

Your messages will be collected and forwarded to her family.


~ HiMY! ~


Fascinating topic - I'll definitely be looking for her book. RIP Ms. Jacobs.

I am the publisher of The West Ender Newsletter a newsletter devoted to the former West End of Boston. Jane Jacobs as well as Herbert Gans have been recieving my newsletter for the past 20yrs.
We are the original Urban Villagers, as coined by Herb Gans.Jane Jacobs was special because she understood that people make neighborhoods not buildings. And deserted streets especially in the daytime are the death of neighborhoods.
