Abstract:

The sixth segment in an 8-part series chronicling the history of New York City from 1609 through 2003. Episode six: Examines the dramatic and increasingly fateful events following the crash of 1929--as the greatest depression in American history plunged the city and nation into economic gloom. Two men came to the fore -- Fiorello La Guardia and Robert Moses, who attempted to create a bold new city of the future. Charting the demise of Mayor Jimmy Walker and the ascendancy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal, this pivotal episode traces the fate of Harlem and the immense public works projects such as the Triborough Bridge and La Guardia Airport.
