New Yorkers honor the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s prophetic "mountaintop speech" as it was replayed in Washington Square Park on Tuesday. King delivered the speech on April 3, 1968, in Memphis where he had gone to support that city's striking sanitation workers. (Credit: Newsday / Yeong-Ung Yang)
