It is a timely tale of what can happen when engaged citizens fight the power for the sake of a better world. Arguably, no one did more to shape our understanding of the modern American city than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and writer who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects.

This documentary features wonderful vintage video of 1930s New York City. The modernists wanted to eliminate street culture by eliminating streets with sidewalks. The Lower Manhattan Expressway was suppose to connect the Holland Tunnel with the Williamsburg Bridge. Where would all of these cars using the proposed expressway park in Lower Manhattan? I would rate "Citizen Jane" at 4.0 stars.
