Jane Jacobs is dead

Jane Jacobs, one of the most interesting writers on urban environments, has died, aged 89. She was the author of books such as the Death and Life of Great American Cities and Dark Age Ahead, both of which I recommend highly.

The world is poorer for her passing, but richer for her writing.
