Last week's Boston Sunday Globe Magazine contained a profile of Kairos Shen. He is the new chief planner for the city of Boston and is described in the article as "lead visionary" for the city.
The Globe printed my letter to the editor in today's magazine.
After Mayor Menino finishes my reading my letter, I will gladly loan him my copy of The Death and Life of Great American Cities.
Addendum: BHI reviewed Jacobs' The Nature of Economies back in 2000.
