Jane Jacobs Way

posted by Jason Kottke   Jul 09, 2009

The block of Hudson St between Perry and W 11th will be co-named “Jane Jacobs Way” in honor of the influential urban thinker.

GVSHP first proposed the street co-naming in 2006 shortly after Jacobs’ death; the proposal was approved by the local community board and the City Council, and then sat in limbo for 2 1/2 years.

Also, the townhouse that Jacobs lived in on the street is for sale. (thx, meg)
