Jane Jacobs, who died last month at age 89, is best known as the author of the influential 1961 book, “The Death and Life of Great American Cities.” Much of what she wrote is still relevant to 21st century challenges and discourse about smart growth, planning and land use regulation, urban revitalization, historic preservation and architectural design.
