Robert Moses Birthday today

Robert Moses would have celebrated his birthday today, but since we are more concerned about Beyouncy (sic) or Brad Pit 9sic) I figured I would spend a moment highlighting an important career.

Known for his planning in New York City and local environs, I tend to like his work centered on parkways.  As Americans were "driven" by Detroit to give up mass transit and become addicted to the auto, Moses propose a highway system that was both practical and scenic.  Since driving for pleasure remains a popular activity, these parkways are valuable resources.
