In 1969, while touring the streets of Kew Gardens, Mayor John Lindsay was heckled and pelted with snowballs by irate citizens for his poor handling of a surprise winter storm which dumped 20 inches of snow in Queens. The storm was so bad mail service disappeared and Queens was cut off from the other boroughs. – AP
