Address at the New York State Association of Towns, New York City

February 7, 1966


New York, NY

All around us is evidence of the urban crisis of our time. The streets are clogged with traffic. The air is heavy with smoke. Our water is in short supply. And a short subway ride on almost any line— when the subways are running— will bring us to the crowded slums of the city, to rat-infested housing and inadequate schools, to hopes as blighted as the buildings.
