The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York





Robert A. Caro (1935-)
The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York
New York: Knopf, 1974

My first real insight into how this city works. Read when I first moved here in the 70s.

An epic tale by a master storyteller of a man and the city he changed forever; a stunning study of raw power, its uses, and abuses.
