Friday marks the 40th anniversary of the death of Robert F. Kennedy, who was serving as a U.S. Senator from New York on the night he was assassinated. There are a host of tributes.
The New York Times features op-eds from Kennedy’s three children.
Daughter Kerry Kennedy, who was 8 years old when her father died, talked about her dad’s legacy on the Today Show.
AMNewYork.com features an article about Richard Drew, a news photographer who documented the shooting in Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles and a slideshow of photographs from the book “A Time It Was: Bobby Kennedy in the Sixties” by photographer Bill Eppridge.
And soon, New York will have a bridge named after the former senator. Yesterday, the New York State Assembly voted to rename the Triborough Bridge the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge. The State Senate passed the bill in April and Governor David Paterson plans to sign the measure.By Mark Berkey-Gerard on June 5, 2008, 8:59 am
