The Death And Life Of Great American Cities By Jane Jacobs

This paper presents an empirical investigation of Jane Jacobs' observations concerning factors generating success within urban neighborhoods. The basic elements of Jacobs' hypotheses of city neighborhood performance are outlined and regression results utilizing Denver as the study area, are presented and compared with findings obtained for Chicago.

Additional measures of neighborhood success and failure are introduced in a subsequent canonical correlation analysis to test the overall validity of Jacbos' thesis. In general the empirical analyses provide little supportive evidence for the hypothesized relationships.

The book is a critique of s urban planning policy, which it holds responsible for the decline of many city neighborhoods in the United States. Jacobs was a critic of " rationalist " planners of the s and s, especially Robert Moses , as well as the earlier work of Le Corbusier. She argued that modernist urban planning overlooked and oversimplified the complexity of human lives in diverse communities. She opposed large-scale urban renewal programs that affected entire neighborhoods and built freeways through inner cities. She instead advocated for dense mixed-use development and walkable streets, with the "eyes on the street" of passers-by helping to maintain public order. Jacobs begins the work with the blunt statement that: "This book is an attack on current city planning and rebuilding.

Even though some of her views go against the standards of urban planning, her work is well respected. Jacobs was born in in the coal mining town of Scranton, PA. She left Scranton for New York City.

I n Donald Barthelme's short story "I Bought a Little City" , the narrator decides one day to purchase Galveston, Texas, where he then tears down some houses, shoots 6, dogs, and rearranges what remains into the shape of a giant Mona Lisa jigsaw puzzle visible only from the air.
