Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
"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 on May 9 in envisioning a Post-Moses New York, what it means for the city, and how to make it a reality.
