Moses, Triborough Bridge Featured at MTA Museum: Brooklyn Heights

The Triborough Bridge: Robert Moses and the Automobile Age

"It has long been a cherished ambition of mine to weave together the loose strands and frayed edges of New York's metropolitan arterial tapestry… The Triborough Bridge Authority has provided the warp on the metropolitan loom, the heavier threads across which the lighter ones are woven." — Robert Moses

Sure, Robert Moses may have single-handedly made the South Bronx an insta-ghetto by building the Cross Bronx Expressway through the heart of the borough, ruined Coney Island, caused the Dodgers to leave Brooklyn and nearly wrecked the NYC subway system because he was obsessed with the automobile, but we're sure this exhibit will help you sort through all of that.
