'A Marvelous Order'

Hosted by  • 

Robert Moses was the super-powerful planner who built pools and parks for New Yorkers but also engineered a car-based future for the region. He met his match in Jane Jacobs, a mother of three living in Greenwich Village, who went on to write the highly influential book, The Death and Life of Great American Cities. Now their epic battle has been dramatized in an opera.
