Jane Jacobs, author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities, helped change the way we look at urban living. As we celebrate the centenary of her birth, Citizen Jane focuses on Jacobs's most drastic battles in the 1960s: when she went up against New York City's most ruthless power broker, Robert Moses. At stake was whether the city's historic neighborhoods of Greenwich Village, Soho and Little Italy would stay intact or be split apart by expressways and urban-renewal housing projects.
