Podcast Episode 79 – Judge Andrew Edison on the Legacy of Robert Moses
Play • 41 min

U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Edison has devoted much time and research to the life and legacy of Robert Moses, a former Parks Commissioner who had a broad and deep impact on the development of New York City’s infrastructure over a period of 50 years. Moses’ career in many ways provides a study of the human cost of eminent domain for different socio-economic communities. Judge Edison’s insight into Moses’ legacy is relevant to today’s discussions surrounding the potential impacts of the currently debated infrastructure bill, both intended and inadvertent.

During the interview, we discuss the following book about Robert Moses:

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

Judge Edison’s podcast recommendation: Two Writers Slinging Yang
