"It's as if Jane Jacobs' bright eye hadn't dimmed ... In the hands of this book's essay writers, new thoughts sprout, all as true to Jane's spirit and inventive urbanity as the gardens (intellectual and physical) she cultivated in her lifetime." ---Neal Peirce, journalist and Chair, The Citistates Group; author, Boundary Crossers

"In this book are the testimonials of `Jane's children'...building on what she began back in the '60s. It's taken a long time, but it's happening." ---David Byrne, musician, artist and author, Bicycle Diaries

"A delicious international and interdisciplinary banquet of offerings to honor the passionate and multifaceted work of our beloved urbanist, Jane Jacobs."---Wendy Sarkissian, author, Kitchen Table Sustainability and Creative Community Planning

"How can one resist cheering on this urban original?...We see how Jane Jacobs and our neighborhoods live on through her ideas."---Victor S. Navasky, Publisher Emeritus, The Nation, and author, A Matter of Opinion

"The reflections on this remarkable woman, and the still-unfolding project of city-building today, are a joy to read."---Anthony Flint, author, Wrestling with Moses

"The essayists in What We See have built on those essential footholds that people who have never heard of Jane Jacobs will benefit from for decades."---Majora Carter, founder, Sustainable South Bronx, and winner, Rachel Carson Award

"A moving and enlightening tribute to the ideas and methods of Jane Jacobs...that will inspire others to observe closely, contemplate broadly, and engage civically."---Glenna Lang, co-author, Genius of Common Sense
