Against the Grain

It was a struggle that shaped not only New York City's urban landscape but that of cities around the country. On one side was the father of urban renewal, Robert Moses, and on the other, urban critic Jane Jacobs. Roberta Brandes Gratz discusses what Moses did -- and tried to do -- to New York, as well as Jacobs' efforts to stymy him, and the long term ramifications of their conflicting visions for the city itself.
