More Moses Reaction: 'Evenhandedness Is Disturbing'

The Wall Street Journal‘s architecture critic Ada Louise Huxtable tackles the three shows now running under the title “Robert Moses and the Modern City: The Transformation of New York.” She’s old enough to remember battling Moses’ plans, and, therefore, finds the show’s “comprehensive objectivity” jarring:

“The carefully inclusive narrative tells it all in safely worded labels that neutralize outrage…. [I]ts very evenhandedness is disturbing. It is almost too cool; there was nothing evenhanded about Moses.”
