    Good Mayor, took over New York during a bad fiscal crises. A million people left nyc during his tenure but not his fault. The city started to rebuild its crumbling infrastructure under him but it also lost most of it manufacturing base and most of its middle class.

    I wonder if he would've come out, if he was mayor in today's world? I think it would be way to hard to hide it with today's media and paparazzi.

    I actually liked him and felt he was good for the city. He was very much an independent based on his views and policies borrowing from both parties as the standards for democrat have shifted incredibly left and best of all Sharpton wasn't a fan of him so you know he was doing something right.

    Great mayor, great time for the city and those working in it. I was happy to have him as mayor of NYC, especially when we saw what Dinkins did in comparison.

    I was at the Central Park memorial for John Lennon the weekend after his death. Thousands of young people and very quiet. Ed made a brief statement that was well received. He even got a little applause. Afterwards he was in the middle of the crowd consoling all these people. It was a horrible thing that happened in his city but he handled it well. As politicians go he was very likable.

    He was livid at Mario Cuomo when they both wanted to be governor. Signs were popping up "Vote for Cuomo, not the homo". Bess Meyerson, ex Miss America, was his beard.

    I remember my first Ed Koch encounter. I was walking down the 56th St when this bald guy comes out of nowhere, puts a crate down, steps up on it and starts giving a speech. A few people like myself stopped to listen to this lunatic. When he finished, he picked up his portable soapbox and disappeared around the corner just as mysteriously as he appeared. I never heard of him, but I thought it was kind of a cool way to run for mayor stump for votes.

    My second Ed encounter was when he was the mayor. I was a city messenger then. It was St. Patrick's Day and I needed to get across 5th Ave, but of course the damned parade was fucking up my scheduled runs. I waited patiently when I finally saw a chance to dart across the street. I made a mad dash and came to a screeching halt when I almost ran smack dab into Mayor Koch. I made it across, but wondered where the hell was his security people? I mean, I could have been some homicidal nutjob and could have easily taken him out.

    I thought overall he was a pretty good mayor (and I was a republican back then). I think by his last term he kind of lost his way a bit. When his biggest issue was fighting against movie theaters because they increased the ticket price to $10.00, I knew his heart wasn't in it anymore.

    he used to eat at this restaurant on e. 22nd i used to go to.....seemed like a very cool guy. a very commanding presence in spite of his down-home (jewish NYC)schtick.

    he was a great mayor as was giuliani.

    Koch created Historic Districts, after people got fed up when the old Penn Station was knocked down.

    All of the neighborhoods like Greenwich Village etc are Historic Districts and have limits on building height etc. Without that it would be a mass of giant ugly condos by now.

    I always thought so but I was only 10-12 years old at the time. My mind was so clouded back then it's hard to really remember.
