Ha! The WSJ hates Jane? I can’t believe it!

I love it when developers blame her for lack of affordability in Manhattan. Especially when comparing her with Robert Moses: NYC’s champion of economic diversity – you’ve finished The Power Broker, right?

For me, Jane is like the Beatles of urban form: sure, ‘Love Me Do’ is a good song but I haven’t listened to it in a while.  For better or worse, it’s part of our 21st Century Yank culture: we all know it whether we could get the high score on Rock Band or not.

Now, ‘Helter Skelter’ on the other hand…
