    The last time I was in NYC Ed Koch was Mayor. I guess I should try and get back at some stage and see if any of the hookers, pimps and junkies are still hanging around Port Authority. :shuffle:

    Nope. The bowling alley is still there, though.

    RIP I always liked Koch. He faced situations with humor and focus, although he did get a little crotchety at the end of his term. He had a great sense of humor on his WABC radio show, always fiesty and quick. All of Manhattan felt different after he left office.

    I liked him but if I had to work with him I have a feeling I would pull my hair out of my head in frustration. RIP.

    Long before Rudi Guiliani ever thought to put on a dress, there was Ed Koch. He really was a larger than life character.

    So I've been brought up to only speak nicely of the dead. So he's dead. How nice.
