In The Death and Life of Great American Cities, Jane Jacobs describes illustrations as being “all about us.” She urges us to supplement diagrams and descriptions with experiences of “real cities.” She encourages us to “listen, linger and think about what you see.”  I’m concentrating on neighborhoods right now and nostalgically reminiscing about days spent running around the lilac tree,  climbing over these fences and running through a sprinkler very similar to the one in the distance.
