    1. Robert Moses

      "Moses was a controversial, if not a supremely effective catalyst of change across New York’s infrastructural landscape." http://www.pbs.org/wnet/need-to-know/environment/the-legacy-of-robert-moses/16018/

      So apparently, after reading "The Legacy of Robert Moses", I've learned that Moses got a lot of things done just because he help multiple offices at once. The most offices he has held at once was twelve. That meant that building bridges that didn't allow certain modes of transportation, such as buses, were easy to do because he simply passed the idea to himself and granted himself permits to get it done. I'm sure he did it so certain races couldn't reach other parts of New York, however, there is no way that could of been legal, regardless of how influential he was in the community.
