Jane Jacobs

A short T.V. segment from 1969, shortly after Jacobs moved to Canada, and eight years after she published The Death and Life of Great American Cities.

A general lesson we can learn from Jacobs is that life sometimes should be complicated and messy, and ought not to be excessively quantified for the sake of some abstract notion of "efficiency."
