Carter to Doctoroff: Face It, You Are the New Robert Moses

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.
