as
follows: · ·It
started
with the
question
of
parkways.
repeating
the
assertion
that
they
left motorists·
at
the edges
of
the
City, and
that
by
preventing
travel
of
busses
on
theparkways,
discriminated
against
the
common
man.
A
statement
was
made
that
the
overall syatem
was
not
well
coordinated. ·Mr.
Barnes
referred
to
lVLr.
Moses
as
having
saidthat
parkways
were
designed
for leisurely
driving for
pleasure.
To
this
Mr.
Barnes
commented
that
when
traffic
was
stacked
up,
it
was
certainly
no
pleasure,
but
that .it was
leisurely,
frequently
not
more
than
4·5 mlles
per
hour,
and
that
the
prohibition
of
busses
was
agajnSt

to
plans
for
the

the
interview
stated that transportation

were
enUl'ely
U.dequate.
It
indicated
that
Mr.
Bames

been
given
to
Ul'lder-
ltaod
that
publto
transportation
would be
the
main
reliance.
He
stated that
since there
.was
only
one subway
station
involved,
this
would leave
major
reliance
on
busses.'lbe
busaes

When
