giving voice to the man who forever changed the face of new york city in his own words.
You can draw any kind of pictures
you like on a clean slate and indulge
your whim in the wilderness in laying
out a New Delhi, Canberra or Brasilia,
but when you operate
in an overbuilt metropolis
you have to hack your way
with a meat axe.
– Robert Moses, City Construction Coordinator for New York, 1964
the text is from moses’s autobiography– Public Works: A Dangerous Trade.
the line breaks are my addition.
i am very sure we will be hearing more from mr moses as the manuscript keeps growing.
