“If Jane Jacobs Came to Chicago …”
From the Daley Urban Forum:
Jacobs, they said, would have found much to like — the rumbling “L” as the symbol of a mass-transit city, the vibrant interplay between Wrigley Field and its neighborhood and the disappearance of the Robert Taylor Homes, once the world’s largest housing project. But she would have turned her thumbs down on such things as the bland new housing of University Village, the sea of parking lots surrounding the United Center and U.S. Cellular Field and the lack of community participation — so far, at least — in Chicago’s plans to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.
