Come and see for yourself

May 1, 2012

Think of it as a blog in 3-D.

This Sunday, May 6th I will be leading A Fresh Look at Social Housing – a tour that literally walks through 30 years of housing policy and speaks to the hot issues facing Toronto’s social housing today.  The tour starts at 2pm at 1555 Queen Street East, just west of Coxwell, and ends at Project Amik around 4 pm.

The tour is one of almost 500 Jane’s Walks held world-wide to commemorate the life and work of Jane Jacobs. There’s other housing walks offered in Toronto this weekend too:

Want to celebrate Jane Jacobs indoors?

This spring the City Builder Book Club hosted a blog on each chapter of Jacob’s Death and Life of Great American Cities.

I wrote the entry on Jacob’s chapter on “Subsidizing dwellings.” It’s called “Redeeming Strategic Lunacy.”  But don’t  stop there. The site is chock-ablock with good thinking.
