Jane Jacobs

$5

Jane Jacobs, a writer, activist, and urbanist, and her Greenwich Village neighbors stopped proposed expressways and demolitions in lower Manhattan in the 1960s.

In the name of “urban renewal,” post-war planners were tearing down old neighborhoods. Jacobs gave voice to the popular resistance. She celebrated cities as living organisms that thrive on density and diversity. No longer could grand plans be

imposed without the consent of the community.

Printed at the worker-owned Stumptown Printers, Portland, OR.

This is #74 in the Celebrate People’s History Poster Series.
