Jane Jacobs and What Her Legacy Means for Trenton
2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Jane Jacobs. Hailed as one of the most influential urban thinkers of the 20th century, Jacobs was a huge believer in the economic, social and environmental benefits of historic preservation. To mark her contribution, the Trenton Historical Society is pleased to welcome Mary Rowe, an urbanist based in New York who has worked on Jacobs’ issues for over twenty years. What is the role of historic preservation in the steady revitalization of smaller communities and mid-sized cities like Trenton? How can existing assets in neighborhoods be better leveraged to improve the quality of place? What needs to change in how preservationists work with city builders in local communities? How can preservation make communities more resilient economically and socially?
Mary Rowe is a Senior Fellow with Project for Public Spaces, and a former senior manager with the Municipal Art Society of New York. She spent 5 years working in New Orleans after Katrina, and is a popular public speaker and facilitator focused on boosting urban livability.
Program is free and open to the public
