A wonderfully balanced account of a decent guy who wanted badly to achieve good things, but didn't have the political skill to pull it off without bringing NYC to the brink of oblivion

1 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Leonard Resto on March 2, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sam Roberts has penned an excellent book taking a look at all points of view at a New York City Mayor who made a big difference in the City. Imagining what an urban landscape should look like in the 21st century began under Mayor John Lindsay. Yes, he had his faults; but, I believe his positive contributions outweighed the shortfalls and he'll go down as one of the "better" Mayors of New York City.
