(Mayor LaGuardia - Lightin' up one for Labor)
Well . . . .there was a war going on.
LaGuardia: “Monday is Labor Day. And that of course brings a long weekend. I want to call attention to the preparations we’ve made for the people of the entire metropolitan area. . . . .we’ve provided ample parking space in Manhattan for all our friends from the metropolitan area who would come in by car. There will be facilities for several hundred cars on the South side of all streets. In addition to that, we’ve provided free parking spaces in Queens at the termini of our subway lines at 169th street and other stations.”
