Jane Jacobs believed a sense of community was critical in creating and maintaining dynamic and diverse neighborhoods. Today, it is increasingly difficult for people of low and moderate income to live in New York City. How can planners, architects, city officials, and developers work with local residents to provide homes that are affordable and sustainable? What role do the dense, mixed-income neighborhoods that Jacobs favored play in creating a strong sense of community? Moderator: Vicki Been, director, Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy. Panelists: Jerilyn Perine, director, Citizens Housing and Planning Council; Holly Leicht, deputy commissioner for development, New York City Department of Housing, Preservation and Development; Michelle de la Uz, executive director, Fifth Avenue Committee; Mark Ginsberg, FAIA, founding partner, Curtis + Ginsberg Architects, LLP. The Jane Jacobs Forum 2008 is underwritten through the generous support of The Rockefeller Foundation in conjunction with its annual Jane Jacobs Medal.
