- Program Description
From the late 1920's through the '60's, Robert Moses built the bridges and highways, parks and parkways, tunnels and expressways of New York, as well as Lincoln Center and the United Nations. However, his public works exacted a human toll; tenements were razed and entire neighborhoods disappeared. This film tells the story of America's "master builder" and his fall from grace in the struggle between public order and individual liberty.
