    Dinkins LOVED tennis and back in the 90’s would come to our club RIRC and we (pros) would hit with him. He had a nice 3.5 game. He was a sweet and nice guy. Thoughts to his family.

  9. My condolences 🙏🏿

  10. Condolences to the family

  11. He visited my Public school in 1992..I was so excited 😥

    • You had him and all I had was Phil Collins singing to me….as a child…😳 lol
      This is so sad for real. It appears from these comments that he was an amazing man. I would much rather listen to him and his wisdom then have Phil Collins sing directly to me and grab my hand during his performance LOL. But that did change my status in school… not that I was looking for it…😏 it was definitely an experience.

  12. They are together AGAIN💯🙏🏾RIP.O.W.E.R

  13. 👌and he was a good mayor etc. because…
    oh, he’s noteworthy because of his skin…

  14. Sincere condolences to the family of Honorable Mayor David Dinkins.

  15. Died of a broken heart.
    History is treating him well now bc he just died & his successor has bcm…what he is.

    • The truth comes out over time. Dinkin cleaned up NYC. All the credit goes to him, and not the Italian mule that took over after him, who did absolutely nothing for NYC but rode on Dinkin’s successes.

    • This reminds me of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. That was a tragedy in itself. May his family find peace in this time of Sorrow..💔

  16. May Mayor David Dinkins REST IN PEACE!!! ASHE’ AMEN!!!
