Dec. 28, 2000 - Jan. 10, 2001
By Jules Ira Rubenstein
We asked members and staff at the St.
James Park Senior Center for their reactions to the death of former New
York City Mayor John Lindsay.
"He did help a lot of poor people in our area, and
he supported the [Davidson Community Center]. So he is going
to be missed."
"Mayor Lindsay did a lot of good for New York City,
and I think he was a very good mayor for all
of us. It's too
bad that he passed away."
"He was a nice man. He would always work with the
people, not against
the people. He would always come around folks, talking
to them. And he always
told the kids 'don't do anything wrong.'"
"Lindsay was a very, very,
very versatile man. He
was a member of the opera. He was a very good lecturer, a
good speaker and a very well-liked man."
"I think he was a very good mayor. He was
responsible, I think, for the SEDA program which opened up
the doors for a lot of African-Americans."
