Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

"Robert Moses and the Modern City" offers a fresh look at the greatest builder in the history of New York City and one of its most controversial figures. In various roles in city and state government from 1930 to 1965, Robert Moses reshaped the fabric of the city. From Lincoln Center to the Triborough Bridge, the West Side Highway to the Cross Bronx Expressway, his public projects, reassessed in this book by notable urbanists, continue to exert a strong influence in the lives of New Yorkers. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Did Robert Moses contribute to the rise or fall of New York City? 29 décembre 2008
Par L.. Oost - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
In 1974 Robert Caro published his damaging account of the public works of Robert Moses in the city of New York. It is a brilliant biography of Big Bob the Builder. Caro stressed the outright evils of the Moses way of planning, his belief in auto mobility in contrast to mass transport, the slum clearance projects which evicted lower income residents, his hostility to the needs of black New Yorkers, his abuse of power. But this perspective needs reassessment. Hilary Ballon and Kenneth T. Jackson collected eight short essays in a nice book titled `Robert Moses and the Modern City'. The essays provide a revised perspective on Robert Moses. Robert Moses did modernize the urban infrastructure of New York, no one will ever have the same impact. But even Big Bob the Builder had to act within a system of constraints. Moses fashioned his image of the power broker, but he didn't possess superpower. He fought other powers, other bureaucratic stakeholders, the federal government with its rules and laws. In fact, Robert Moses had the capacity to think big. He tried to preserve the middle class for New York, he fought dispersal and he promoted the inclusion of cultural and educational institutions within the city. This reappraisal of the public works of Robert Moses is a welcome contribution to the debate about the rise or fall of New York.

Unfortunately, the essays are a bit of a drudge, but the book itself is definitive, and as a life long NY City resident I must admit - absolutely dazzling. Its less about Robert Moses, more about his hand over projects that involved countless talented Americans. Learn about highways never built, public parks on the grandest of scales, and how to clear a city slum via Title 1. You thought you knew NY City, and perhaps were even sure Manhattan was all you would ever need to know. This book shows the sophisticated development of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and The Bronx, as well as their more popular and over crowded, smaller brother. Simply amazing.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Valuable antidote to Caro 21 mars 2008
Par Peter Samuel - Publié sur Amazon.com

Ballon & Jackson have put together a very useful documentation of the amazing works built in New York under Robert Moses. It is mainly narrative and a documentation, but where it gets into the more subjective business of assessment it is balanced and reasonable. The book is an excellent counterpoint to Robert Caro's "The Power Broker" which although eloquent and informative is a horribly slanted view of the man and of the issues.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Good read 30 janvier 2012
Par py6125 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I ordered this book knowing a bit about Robert Moses, but this book completed the picture of this very intelligent, driven and complex man. I felt it was not overly harsh or praising in it's assessment of him, but in the end I walked away with an incredible appreciation for all that he did. I had never realized how much he had accomplished over the course of his career. Perhaps it was the nature of those times, his arrogance or power he usurped, but in NYC today it would take 20 years to get just one of his projects done. And it would not possess the quality of design or craftsmanship his projects have.

...and as for the mid manhattan expressway that he proposed, but never built because of community opposition... I guarantee if it was built people would be saying now "imagine if they didn't let Robert Moses built this how awful it would be to get around town!"

Very nice photos, but some captions are not very informative and the print is a bit small.
