When discussing the fate of cities in the 20th century, few voices loom larger than those of noted urbanist and social commentator Jane Jacobs. The Municipal Art Society of New York recently paid tribute to Jacobs' legacy and work in an exhibit at their galleries on Madison Avenue, and they also saw fit to create this accompanying website. The site contains multimedia discussions on urbanism sponsored by the Society, along with an exhibition overview. The homepage also invites visitors to respond to questions such as "What makes a good neighborhood?" and "Can one person change the city?" The "Multimedia" section of the site includes interactive maps of New York, along with all of the video clips and podcasts related to this exhibit and its discussions of the future of New York.
