A fresh look at the greatest builder in the history of New York City and one of its most controversial figures.?We are rebuilding New York, not dispersing and abandoning it?: Robert Moses saw himself on a rescue mission to save the city from obsolescence, decentralization, and decline. His vast building program aimed to modernize urban infrastructure, expand the public realm with extensive recreational facilities, remove blight, and make the city more livable for the middle class. This book offers a fresh look at the physical transformation of New York during Moses?s nearly forty-year reign over city building from 1934 to 1968.
