Urban Sociology

Urban Sociology
Project description
his will be your last written assignment outside of the Final Project! Both of these short readings are quite fascinating and lead to excellent discussions. Also, these are people/ideas that you can incorporate into your Final Project (you will have to incorporate two thinkers in your write-up, along with eight key terms similar to the Midterm Project).

Answer the reading prompts (both are comprised of several questions) in a couple of substantive paragraphs each.


Jane Jacobs (pdf, 159.6 KB)
The Use of Sidewalks: Safety in The Death and Life of Great American Cities

According to Jacobs, what are the three main qualities a city street must have in order to safely handle strangers? Explain each one with an example. How do at least two of these fit into the story Jacobs tells about the little girl? As this was written some 50 years ago, how do you think these ideas apply in today’s society?


William Whyte (pdf, 198.5 KB)
“The Undesirables” in City: Rediscovering the Center

Why are some public places designed defensively by planners? What are some examples of this (from the reading and/or from personal experience)? What are some unintended consequences that happen as a result (like Bryant Park in this reading)? If these designs don’t work, then what is the best way to handle the problem of “undesirables” (according to Whyte)?
