He controlled what is today Citibank and he controlled the railroad lines that go Westward from New York City. He helped purchase the land that made John Jacob Astor wealthy. He also had an unfortunate association with Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall.
Moses Taylor (January 11, 1806 - May 23, 1882) was a 19th century New York merchant and banker and one of the wealthiest men of that century.
