The Death And Life Of Great American Suburbs

(I finally got around to Jane Jacob's "Death And Life Of Great American Cities", and this edition has a forward that starts off with her talking about "car people" and "foot people", and how the book was written from and to "foot people", and "car people" really didn't enter into its picture at all and reacted generally against it...

And it made me wonder if there ARE people who unironically love the suburbs, and what sorts of things they might be able to love/want to protect about them.)


(... okay, well, beSIDES the people who love how they have the Right Sort of people in them, and for whom Protecting them involves keeping out Undesireables. I know about that type of "love" "for" suburbs, and I don't care about it.)
