straight from the source

giving voice to the man who forever changed the face of new york city in his own words.

Found Poem

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.
