Pushing Back on the Status Quo

And if you didn't think JSK rocked, here's your quote of the day:
And more than a little ironic, seeing as Moses constructed his empire of roads and highways while serving for 26 years as the city’s Parks commissioner. One wonders what he would think of a Transportation commissioner who dismantled New York’s most famous street and turned it into a park.

One also wonders what Jane Jacobs would think of a transportation planner who ignores the local business community when she thinks it won't agree with her, and makes major streets discontinuous for cars.
