This episode is from the WNYC archives. It may contain language which is no longer politically or socially appropriate.

From card catalog: State of negotiations, appeals to the people of the city.

Mayor Lindsay updates the city, even though there's no update on the transit strike. The strike is unlawful, an injunction has been filed. Thanks to New Yorkers. Use nighttime hours for deliveries, leave early in the morning, group riding is a must. Suggestions to keep the city going tomorrow. New Yorkers walking were making better time than those on the streets. Tomorrow's poverty hearing is postponed. Q&A. Quill.

Reporter chatter continues after press conference.
