Yes: fossil fuels, green, blah blah…

Just go to the history of Robert Moses who built road overpasses too low for busses so they couldn’t travel from NYC to beaches. Inner cities are filled w liberals and people of color. Public transportation gives access and power that they want to deny: racist.

That's a breathtaking amount of thought and attention to detail to put into the most petty acts of spiteful cruelty.

Sure is.

Robert Moses was a piece of garbage who had more power over the urban development of NYC than imaginable.

Many acts were done to segregate black people from white people and to deny black people access to services. He created a form of systemic poverty here that we still are unwinding.

Most Brooklynites blame Walter O'Malley for moving their beloved Dodgers to Los Angeles but it was only after Robert Moses rejected O'Malley's plans for building a new stadium where the Barkley Center is today...

My father is from Brooklyn and was a Brooklyn Dodgers fan to the max. He has a full wall of the study dedicated to photos of the Dodgers. Been hearing this since my youth. Fuck Moses.

Was never allowed to root for Yankees as a kid.

Great book. It’s time for them to rename Robert Moses Park.

I’m only now truly understanding how fucked up Robert Moses was. What’s even worse now os the bridges and roads he built are completely crumbling and there’s barely any money or plans to fix it
