Ed Koch (1924-2013)

Bronx-born former mayor Ed Koch passed away today. During my senior year at Baruch, he came by as a guest speaker. Though I didn’t necessarily agree with some of his views, I appreciate how passionate he was about them. Any YouTube or Google search will show you that he was definitely a dynamic figure. Check out this NY Times piece about Koch’s visit to the Bronx in 1998.
