No doubt Ed koch was one of the most corrupt mayors NYC Ever had. he sold our city out to his real estate mafia buddies that he never had the balls to stand up against. but worked with them instead to in in cage in economic treason against his own america citizens in NYC and used the struggling class as a diversionary tactic to cover up his treason act of greed and corruption. we'll it was o.k for him to live in a rent cheap rent control apt in the village a cross from washington sq. park. well the rest of the city was under attack due to birth of corruptifercation to push out communities of culture.

Good riddance koch he died of 88 the code word for hitler youth but only this time a capo youth.. guest he'll be joining hitler in hell.

He was a veteran who fought in Europe in World War 2, and loved New York City.

Rest in peace.

Loving a city and governing one are two separate situations.

I saw a decaying city in the 80's. A class and racial divide was clear and present as well.

Sad to hear that Mayor Koch has passed away. I remember him as a good mayor who sure loved New York and did a lot for the people.

I remember walking with him one sunny day in August back in the 80's. We saws man laying in his own filth and urine. The man reached out to us with his hand trembling from not eating. The man said I haven't eaten in three days. Ed looked at him and said you should force yourself. That was him always with a joke and a smile. He turned away from the fuming scum that held its hand out to him and said Will that's our city. We need to realize tourists love our junkies and maniacs. Just then he turned back around and gave a steamy golden shower to the man. The warmth of the mayors urine soothed the scumbag until he passed away from exposure and sepsis. Ed you were a hands on guy that wouldn't get caught in a men's room with his pants down. The office of coco his house boy will be open this week also as a reminder of his legacy.
