Robert Moses

New York's massively powerful urban planner, a man both admired and hated, whose parks, bridges, and mighty roadways, built from the 30s to the 60s, define the shape of New York today, is described in the 'Brooklyn' chapter of Rutherfurd's New York.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first Armistice Day observances, which included a two minute silence, were held in London at Buckingham Palace on the eleventh day of November 1919, exactly a year after the last day of World War I. That same day, in America, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation commemorating the day as Armistice Day. In Britain, Canada and many other places, this date is now called Remembrance Day; in the US Veterans Day.
