The Rockefeller Foundation is now taking nominations for the second annual Jane Jacobs Medal. The Municipal Art Society administers the medal, which goes to "two living individuals whose creative vision for the urban environment has significantly contributed to the vibrancy and variety of New York City."
Last year’s winners were Barry Benepe, pioneer of New York City’s Greenmarkets program, and Omar Freilla, founder of Greenworker Cooperatives in the Bronx.
