Majora Carter, founder of Sustainable South Bronx, tells New York magazine that she doesn’t much care for the man some call New York’s modern-day Robert Moses, Deputy Mayor Daniel Doctoroff:
It’s interesting that you group Doctoroff and Moses together. Do you think the deputy mayor sees himself as the new Moses?
Oh, God, yeah. Completely. He thinks he’s the man … The problem with the big projects of Moses and now Doctoroff is that they don’t think about what the long-term impacts are of exercising that much power on people who have none. It’s the idea that people are in the way.
