Before his twenty-four year tenure in the senate representing New York state, Daniel Patrick Moynihan was the director of the joint MIT-Harvard Center for Urban Studies, where he was an early critic of the rapid highway development in the post-war period. He explains this position in a essay titled "New Roads and Urban Chaos" which was published in the New York bi-weekly The Reporter in 1960. You can view it here.
