On Thursday, March 31, The Museum of the City of New York will hold a panel designed to “go beyond the usual discussion of Jacobs and take an unsentimental look at her continuing relevance—or lack thereof—to planning in New York today”.  Panelists include:

– Max Page, co-editor of Reconsidering Jane Jacobs (APA Planners Press, 2011);
– David Freeland, author of Automats, Taxi Dances, Vaudeville: Excavating Manhattan’s Lost Places of Leisure (New York University Press, 2009);
– Mary Rowe, Urban Fellow, Municipal Art Society of New York; and
– Samuel Zipp, author of Manhattan Projects: The Rise and Fall of Urban Renewal in Cold War New York (Oxford University Press, 2010)
