Happy Birthday Jane!

Jane Jacobs would be celebrating her 93rd birthday today.  She was born on May 4, 1916 in born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the daughter of a doctor and a former schoolteacher and nurse.  After graduating from Scranton’s Central High School, she took an unpaid position as the assistant to the women’s page editor at the Scranton Tribune. A year later, in the middle of the Great Depression, she left Scranton for New York City.  (wiki)

Take a moment and wish her a happy birthday today!  Better yet, help celebrate it by spending time walking around your favorite part of the city, perhaps stopping at a local business for lunch or a drink.
