In this episode, I talk about A Tale of One City...NYC and the different perspectives of two heavyweights wanting different results.
On one side there was Robert Moses, the urban developer and on the other side, there was Jane Jacobs, mother, wife, and activist who cared about the residents and the diverse neighborhoods that make up NYC.
