A man watches the documentary film "Koch", about former New York City mayor Ed Koch, at the Angelika Film Center in New York, February 1, 2013. Koch, the voluble three-term mayor who helped bring New York back from the brink of fiscal ruin in the 1970s and came to embody the city with his wry, outspoken style, died on Friday at the age of 88.
