Anthony Flint: Wrestling with Moses
Reporter and urban planning policy expert Anthony Flint discusses his new book Wrestling with Moses: How Jane Jacobs Took on New York’s Master Builder and Transformed the American City on Wednesday, June 16, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
Robert Moses, a man behind many large New York developments, saw some neighborhoods as in need of his own brand of "urban renewal." Flint explains how Jacobs marshaled support and political power against the unrelenting Moses, spurring a movement to reclaim cities for their residents.
