Thank you!

Thanks to the folks who came out last night to our Jane Jacobs memorial event. We had a full room with a lot of new faces. It was wonderful to meet new people who are doing great things for the city, including folks from the Municipal Art Society, The Next American City, Columbia's Urban Technical Assistance Program, the Center for Architecture, the Council of Senior Centers and Services of New York City, and of course the Rockefeller Foundation and the newly formed Urban Design department at the Department of City Planning. Thanks in particular to Darren Walker (pdf) (who only had two hours of sleep the night before!) and to Alex Washburn for talking about the Jacobsian legacy and the future of New York City. Hope to see all of you at the same time next year.
