This week, we celebrated the birthday of Jane Jacobs, the writer and urban planner who changed the way we looked at cities and what makes them more accessible and livable on a human—and, some would argue, more humane—scale. If living in the Jane Jacobsean dream that is the West Village—pedestrian-friendly, walkable, shop-lined, though increasingly too expensive—is what you're looking for, these open houses will satiate your two-bedroom thirst.
