Photos from 'Robert Moses and the Modern City'

This gallery is a collection of images related to New Deal projects, scanned from the book Robert Moses and the Modern City: The Transformation of New York, edited by Hilary Ballon and Kenneth T. Jackson, W.W. Norton & Co., New York (2007), with color photos by Andrew Moore, plus historic black-and-white photos from various sources. Most of the images in this gallery are 300dpi scans, but a few of the color ones where the scans were unsatisfactory are iPhone photos. The book is about Moses, not the New Deal, but the images in this gallery are all of New Deal projects, the New Deal heritage of which has been suppressed or forgotten in most cases.
