The death and life of great American cities
In chapter 6 of Jane Jacobs’ book I learned how she describes what is a neighborhood consists of, and what makes up a community. According to her most important part of a neighborhood are people and street Jacobs used the term “eyes on the street”. I agree with Jane Jacobs because without a strong sense of community neighborhoods would crumble. I lived in India until I was 9 and in my neighborhood back home me and my friends would play outside without our parents supervision but since our neighborhood was tight community we were always being watched by our elders.
