The Great City Builder

“Our New York is Robert Moses’s New York. He built 13 bridges, 416 miles of parkways, 658 playgrounds, and 150,000 housing units, spending $150 billion in today’s dollars. If you are riding the waves at Jones Beach or watching the Mets at Shea Stadium or listening to “La Traviata” at Lincoln Center or using the Triborough Bridge to get to the airport, then you are in the New York that Moses built.”
