The Legacy of Jane Jacobs in the Village
A panel discussion with Alice Sparberg Alexiou, Katy Bordonaro, and Warren Shaw
Celebrating the centennial of Jane Jacobs’s birth
Join us as panelists discuss Jane Jacobs and how her work and activism shaped the landscape of our neighborhoods. The massive urban renewal projects proposed by Robert Moses were defeated by the early preservation efforts of Jacobs. Her writings and philosophy changed the way we built, planned, and organized for generations to come, in the Village and beyond.
Village Preservation Executive Director Andrew Berman will moderate the discussion.
