Untapped Cities Insiders are invited to watch the storytellers of In Polite Company tell the unauthorized life story of infamous New York City public official, Robert Moses. In Polite Company plays fast and loose with facts, libel laws, and people’s hearts as they unfurl tales of the Master Builder of New York City, star of the Power Broker, Citizen Jane, and Body Heat. See some NYC history through the lens of regular, uninformed citizens whose only citations are word-of-mouth, slander, and plain ol’ run-of-the-mill gossip.

Robert Moses spent over 45 years as a public official in New York, holding various titles including NYC Parks Commissioner and Chairman of the Long Island State Park Commission. He is a polarizing figure who was responsible for much of the infrastructure, good or bad, that New York has today, including the Triborough Bridge, and the cross-Bronx Expressway, and park features like public pools and the Riverside Park expansion.
