Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch Dead at 88
Ed was pronounced dead of congestive heart failure in New York Presbyterian/Columbia Hospital early Friday morning (February 1).
“In elected office and as a private citizen, he was our most tireless, fearless, and guileless civic crusader,” current NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a statement. “We will miss him dearly, but his good works – and his wit and wisdom – will forever be a part of the city he loved so much.”
Our thoughts go out to Ed‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
