Former Mayor John V. Lindsay, who has had a recent history of heart problems, collapsed Tuesday afternoon in a midtown office building and was taken to New York Hospital, police said.
They said the Emergency Medical Service described Lindsay as conscious but dizzy and weak when he was picked up. He was undergoing tests and "doing well," said hospital spokeswoman Kathy Robinson.
Lindsay, who has practiced law since leaving City Hall in 1973, underwent a 4 1/2 -hour operation to repair a leaky heart valve at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in January 1988. Last March he was hospitalized again and underwent tests in the coronary intensive care unit of New York Hospital.
