Victoria Theatre 1/3/66. Cropped version.

January 3, 1966 — New York City was in the third day of its first transit strike shutting down the subway and city buses. Newly sworn in Mayor John Lindsay urged people “who are not essential workers” to stay home to avoid massive vehicular traffic. Well, who isn’t an “essential worker?” Everyone from janitors to CEO’s jammed the highways while others braved the winter weather hoofing it across bridges or riding bicycles. It was a nightmare.
