Midge ends up in a rally in Washington Square Park organized by none other than Jane Jacobs, protesting Robert Moses and his plan to build a highway through the park. Midge has no idea who Jane Jacobs is but quickly decides she supports the cause. Jacobs calls her onto the stage to “share her story.” Revel in the historically accurate posters in the crowds during this scene. Moses would lose the fight.
