As a Jane Jacobs fan, I was excited to read this book about her efforts to preserve the neighborhoods of NY against the madness of Moses, a New Havener by birth. It wasn't nearly as long as I thought it would be, but it did prove to be interesting to me as a city lover and a fan of municipal understanding. Made me admire Jacobs even more, and also feel complicated about Moses and want to know more about him. Finished it on the beach on an island, far from Manhatten.
