Pressestimmen"Jacobs has been working on this classic there"s no other word for it for a decade. Jacobs rightly believes that good cities are made of good streets and that we"re rapidly losing our talent for creating them. He measures and draws many of the worldi'1/2s great streets, from Pittsburgh to Beijing. He describes changes in the street pattern of cities like Boston, where a square mile of downtown contains 100 fewer blocks than it did a century ago... A thoughtful, sane, informed and very personal book, aimed primarily at professionals but readable enough for anyone interested in the subject." Robert Campbell , Boston Globe
