Tune in to Episode 79 of Clint Schumacher’s Eminent Domain Podcast! In this episode, Clint is joined by U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Edison. Judge Edison has dedicated a considerable amount of time and research to the life and legacy of Robert Moses. Moses was a former Parks Commissioner who had a significant impact on New York City’s infrastructure development over half a century. In many ways, his career provides a study of the impact of eminent domain on different socio-economic communities.
Judge Edison’s understanding of Moses’ legacy is relevant to today’s discussions on the possible intended and inadvertent effects of the infrastructure bill currently under debate. In this interview, Clint and Judge Edison discuss the book “The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York” by Robert Caro.
