Come learn about Jane Jacobs and how her influence spread beyond Manhattan, and inspired environmental restoration and neighborhood revitalization efforts in the Bronx.

Like Jane Jacobs, Bronx activists had to deal with Moses’ expressway and auto-oriented plans. Moses was even more dismissive of Bronx neighborhoods than of SoHo or the West Village, but in the 1960s the Bronx hadn’t developed the clout with which to force a rerouting of the Cross-Bronx Expressway (which we see in the distance)–but this would soon change.
