This chapter describes stories covered by the City Sun from 1984 to 1985. These include the paper’s crusade for the family of Eleanor Bumpurs, a sixty-seven-year-old grandmother who was shot and killed by police after she resisted being evicted from her Bronx apartment; the paper’s strong dissatisfaction with the policies of mayor Ed Koch; Cooper’s doubts about the credibility of mayoral candidate Herman D. (Denny) Farrell, a black assemblyman from Manhattan; and the case against Transit Authority police in the death of Michael Stewart, a twenty-five-year-old graffiti artist arrested for allegedly defacing a subway station at Fourteenth Street and First Avenue.

Keywords:   City Sun, weekly newspapers, Eleanor Bumpurs, Ed Koch, Herman D. Farrell, Transit Authority, Michael Stewart
