Event description

Description

"In the twentieth century, the influence of Robert Moses on the cities of America was greater than that of any other person."

-Lewis Mumford

Robert Moses fundamentally altered New York in the 20th century, and his legacy continues to shape the region to this day. But New York now faces a unique opportunity to move beyond the Moses era; by properly reinvesting in our infrastructure, we can build a world class regional network that makes it possible to get from anywhere to everywhere.

Please join us in envisioning a Post-Moses New York, what it means for the city, and how to make it a reality.
