John V. Lindsay

As the 103rd mayor of New York City from 1965 to 1973, John V. Lindsay had to contend with increased crime, a major strike by public transit employees, and racial unrest. This online exhibit from the Museum of the City of New York complements the physical exhibit at the Museum. On the site, visitors can read about Lindsay's time in office, watch his campaign commercials, and look through several photo essays. Visitors can start their journey by clicking on the "Who Was John Lindsay?" area. Here they will find several introductory essays on his life, along with links to personal recollections from his friends and associates. Moving on, "Lindsay's New York" offers a portrait of New York in the late 1960s and 1970s, and visitors can't help but feel drawn into this tumultuous time via the photo galleries and remembrances from people like fellow mayor Rudy Giuliani. The site is rounded out by an excellent "Resources" area, which includes articles, books, and videos.
