Michael Janavel, ’67, on November 22, 1963

In our previous newsletter, we published an article written by Tim Bolton ’65, recounting his experience on the day of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, which occurred while he was a student at Stuyvesant. We asked alumni to send us their own memories of the events of November 22, 1963.

I was at the bus stop at 2nd Ave & 14th St, waiting for the bus to the ferry. A classmate came up to me and told me the news. I remember some excitement and an effigy of DeWitt Clinton, our biggest rival.I remember that the game was canceled the next day.
