Amazon.com description: Product Description: For every city dweller seeking richness and connection in contemporary urban life.

When Kathleen Hirsch first moved to Jamaica Plain, an unassuming neighborhood in Boston, she was looking for a place to belong, to set down roots. Was it possible, she wondered, to find community in a contemporary city? A Home in the Heart of a City is Hirsch's exuberant and hopeful response. We follow her as she meets extraordinary individuals, including the protector of a local park, an urban gardener, and a corporate lawyer turned community advocate. They become her guides, showing that living well in community is as much about the personal choices we make to work, play, and associate in certain ways as it is about the grassroots institutions we build to foster community life.
