Should this be separate from Jane Jacobs?[edit]

Nice work on this, Jleon, but I'm wondering if you are going to extend the length substantially more. If not, then there is a case for not having a separate page, but just incorporating this material into the

Jane_Jacobs#The Death and Life of Great American Cities

section. -- JimR 03:40, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

--Well I thought the book deserved its own article, mostly to allow the potential to expand it (kind of like the Power Broker article). The Jacobs article is rather long as it is, and some people may just be looking for info on the book and not want to sort through the biographical info on Jacobs. In terms of length, I guess it would be nice to expand into more depth about the theories she develops in it. --Jleon 13:48, 6 February 2006 (UTC)

As an urban planner, this book has an influence above and beyond Jane Jacobs as an individual. Altho it seems to google only about 500, in many ways, Death and Life... has taken on a life of its own. ----JC Shepard 20:55, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
