Dick Clark dies: “His spirit will always live on in Times Square,” says Mayor Michael Bloomberg
STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON THE DEATH OF DICK CLARK
“Times Square is considered the crossroads of the world in no small part because Dick Clark’s New Years Eve celebrations there were beamed across the globe. I remember one New Years Eve, he and I stood in Times Square marveling about how much the area – and the City – had improved over the years. But Dick Clark never had to change – he was a great entertainer who stood the test of time. Generations of Americans grew up with Dick, and yet he seemed forever young. His spirit will always live on in Times Square, and in hearts of millions of New Yorkers.”
