Part I: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Robert Moses in NYC

Part I: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Robert Moses in NYC

Join New York City historian Kevin Draper for the first in a two-part exploration of Robert Moses. No one did more in the 20th century to shape NYC then Moses. One of the most polarizing figures in the history of urban development, Moses was both praised and vilified.

Part I in our series will explore the positive influence of this remarkable mid-20th century “master builder”.

Date: Monday, June 8
Time: 6 p.m.

Our discussion will be live on Zoom. Register to join the conversation. Once your registration is confirmed, we will send you a link to our Columbia University Club meeting room.
