Description

John Lindsay was the liberal Republican mayor of New York City from 1966-1973. During the late-1960s, following labor and racial unrest, as well as his mishandling of a winter blizzard, Lindsay received a backlash from white conservatives who opposed his civil rights advocacy and campaign for increased low-income housing. Lindsay’s socially liberal platform challenged the growing conservativism of Nixonian Republicanism.
