Jane Jacobs – What Makes a City? [Video]

Jane JacobsI have been digging into Jane Jacobs’s books recently and was excited to find this 1993 video yesterday.

[ Read an Excerpt of Jane Jacobs’s last book – DARK AGE AHEAD ]

In this video, Jacobs and Lee Cullum discuss the renewal and morality of cities in the Dallas Institute of Humanity and Culture’s 1993 “What Makes a City Conference: The Sacred Center.”

If you’re interested in hearing Jane Jacobs, start the video at 14:30. Before that point, there’s a LONG intro about the lecture series, which provides some context, but can easily be skipped.
