An apartment at 1 Gracie Terrace once owned by the powerful and controversial city planner Robert Moses has just hit the market asking $1.95 million. Thankfully, no expressways run through it.

According to the New York Post, which first reported the story, Moses lived in the home from the 1970’s until his death in 1981 at the age of 92. During his long tenure as city planner, Moses significantly shaped New York City with projects like the Triborough Bridge and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. He is also known for displacing thousands of people by building highways throughout the city and beyond. Moses was the subject of Robert A. Caro’s Pulitzer-Prize-winning biography “The Power Broker,” which painted him as a ruthless and somewhat corrupt mastermind.

His apartment has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a terrace with views of the river. The listing also notes that it is only a short walk from the Second Avenue Subway — which we’re sure would not please Moses, as he regularly prevented funds from going to the project during his tenure.

As for the power broker listing the place? It’s Andrea D’Amico of Corcoran. [NYP]
