Real City Illustrations for Jane Jacobs' Death and Life of Great American Cities

Create Map

Jane Jacobs did not provide illustrations for her book Death and Life of Great American Cities. This map provides insights into her thoughts by attempting to look closely at real cities. The descriptions and comments in this dynamic map show what students in Urban Form and City Planning at Texas A&M (URPN 201.501) have observed. Some of the locations on the map have been observed in person, others have been observed virtually. While the students were looking, that have attempted to also listen, linger and think about what they saw.
