Michael Jackson Tribute in Harlem


Legman Robert Sietsema reports from Harlem: “The Jumbotron, encased in a blue plastic bubble, is set to Fox TV. The emcee apologizes — ‘It’s the only signal we can get here.’ The crowd groans and boos… 125th Street is lined with hastily-set-up tables selling photos and unauthorized t-shirts. Crowd numbers perhaps 2000.”
