Robert Moses
I raise my stein to the builder who can remove ghettos without removing people as I hail the chef who can make omelets without breaking eggs.
Moses quotes
You can draw any kind of picture you want on a clean slate and indulge your every whim in the wilderness in laying out a New Delhi, Canberra, or Brasilia, but when you operate in an overbuilt metropolis, you have to hack your way with a meat ax.
Cities are created by and for traffic. A city without traffic is a ghost town.

Moses Robert quotes
Those who can, build. Those who can't, criticize.
