If you wanna see me talk about the limits of Jane Jacobs, here I am youtu.be/zIkzwyIgA4g
forthcoming book: how to kill a city
vital little plans – urban flights – nathan storring
problem w/jane – 1/2 right.. over focus on aesthetics.. ie: small streets.. varying size of bldgs.. miss econ component.. so when look at w village now (where she wrote book) only mn/bn aires are able to live there.. death and life ignores need to protect cities from gentrification.. jj might have called success.. she said.. greatest threat to neighborhood is its success… attracts people… so privileged move there.. so w/o rent control et al.. nice neighborhoods become rich neighborhoods..
9 min – st lawrence neighborhood – toronto.. best ie.. brought people out of poverty.. walkable.. integrations… after 45 yrs.. not many places have taken all that in..
18 min – the half right ness.. it’s about how we interpret/remember her..
21 min – jennifer keesmaat (chief planner for city of toronto).. keeps saying.. why we need policy.. jacobs things don’t seem relevant.. when there are other things more (impending)
I talked to @ptrmsk about his new book and what people misunderstand about #gentrification: https://t.co/IQ3npZyWYH

Gentrification might be a new term, but housing inequality has been going on for hundreds of years. People have been coming up up with new and inventive tactics [pro-squatting movements ] to fight these systems for so long, and that gives me hope that these people know what they’re doing. What remains to be seen is how we can motivate all the people who haven’t started to do that work.”

i was interviewed about Detroit’s “recovery,” incl. one of the bigest points I’m trying to make about ALL cities: https://t.co/zCup3HFGDA https://t.co/3KD1nAHt48 (http://twitter.com/ptrmsk/status/855081350713548801?s=17)
What’s happening is not a rebirth of the city but a focused concentration on one particular part of it.
usually improvement is synonymous with displacement. That’s just the way the system works.
This paragraph from HOW TO KILL A CITY about post-Katrina New Orleans is so well-written and so telling https://t.co/eLPqyEfe2t

Would hope we acknowledge this every time we have the “are antidepressants good or bad” debate https://t.co/rIdaX1gGu5 (http://twitter.com/ptrmsk/status/991297642864013313?s=17)

(Feel like I have to say this every time but: I’m not anti taking antidepressants but leftists tend to lack a systemic / anti capitalist critique of why we are all so sad all the time!) (http://twitter.com/ptrmsk/status/991298248068485120?s=17)
systemic ness.. aka: getting back to undisturbed ecosystem

i wrote a kind of how-to on my PTSD recovery. Would appreciate shares and comments, cuz I feel like practical PTSD information is really hard to come by!
Capitalistic work standards will make you feel like a failure because you are taking the time to recover. You can work against that feeling. Give yourself time. Lots of time. That’s still something I have to remind myself of daily: there is no set timeline, I recover when I recover, and I’m in it for me and my happiness, not so that I can be more productive.
systemic shame from major source of problem
P. E. Moskowitz (@ptrmsk) tweeted at 6:32 AM – 8 Jun 2018 :
Our culture produces isolation along with our sadness: we are told to figure out ways to be happy and productive and that there’s something wrong with us if we’re not. So we end up feeling not only sad (which we all should be because the world is terrible) but also like failures (http://twitter.com/ptrmsk/status/1005065066125938689?s=17)
P. E. Moskowitz (@ptrmsk) tweeted at 6:51 AM – 26 Jun 2018 :
More and more people are realizing working thru the system will never work. That we have to distrupt.
That scares the shit out of people (DC journalists, politicians, etc) whose entire lives are based on the idea of the system working. (http://twitter.com/ptrmsk/status/1011592711370170368?s=17)
the worst part of depression isn’t being depressed, it’s feeling guilty and like my life will collapse if I can’t work every second of the day https://t.co/QZX3Fd2XLv
