Further memories of Former NYC Mayor John V. Lindsay

I was a sixteen year old black teenager who volunteered with the Lindsay Campaign, first at the Staten Island office then at the 5th Avenue campaign office between 52nd and 53rd Street.  I was later hired has a campaign staff person.  Both Lindsay and his wife Mary were kind to me.  I especially remember a Labor day walking tour on Staten Island.  Someone through a large paper cup filled with beer at the mayor.  I was hit by a large portion of the beer.  Mayor Lindsay teased me the rest of the campaign about being from Staten Island. I shed a tear when I heard he died.  I will always remember his openness and kindness.
