James W. Rouse was a major figure in American urban planning. An outspoken critic of automobile-oriented suburban sprawl, Rouse and his company designed the Washington, D.C., suburb of Columbia, Maryland, to include a pedestrian-friendly town center. He specialized in the redevelopment of decaying urban downtowns, earning a reputation as "the man who made cities fun again". Among Rouse's successful redevelopment projects were the South Street Seaport in New York City, Harbor Place in Baltimore, and Faneuil Hall in Boston.
