Watching: Jane Jacobs—Neighborhoods in Action

A great video produced by the Active Living Network (a project of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation). It features an interview with the urban goddess herself.  The clip explores the role of the built environment in physical activity and public health.  /it’s 9 minutes and 46 seconds VERY well spent)

I love her support for skateboarding as an important of youth physical activity.  Lots of good aphorisms at the end as well.
