Forty-Year-Old John Lindsay Campaign Billboard Uncovered in Flatbush

by

John Lindsay was the mayor of New York City from 1966 to 1973. That’s definitely far enough in the past that you’d think his campaign materials would be long gone. Check out this photo, though:

That’s a Lindsay campaign billboard from the late 60s, recently uncovered on the corner of Bedford and Flatbush Avenues in Brooklyn.

Apparently the billboard was covered by a modern billboard until a few weeks ago. Google Street View shot from when it was covered:
