I had the good fortune to meet and speak with you not so very long ago at a book signing you were doing on Long Island. You were gracious,funny, and completely accessible. It was a joy meeting you. You saved N.Y.C. and put it back on top. God gave you to us for 88yrs- quite a wonderful run, Mr. Koch. N.Y.C. finally has an official guardian angel-and one with chutzpha! God speed dear friend-Thanks Ed, -see you later. Rick

I remember Mayor Koch standing on line in front of me at the viewing of the late assemblyman Anthony Genovese. When the ushers came to him and said your honor, we will take you to the front now, he responded "I will wait in line, I will not go in front of others standing here before me". He then turned and said to me, "how'd I do? I replied, "great". A class act for a world class New Yorker, R.I.P. Mayor Koch

February 03, 2013
thank you Mr.Mayor for being such a good man and for showing us that we can all do good as people and not to waste one minute of life.
February 03, 2013
Worked on an interview tv show with Mayor Koch in my NYC studio 2 years ago. Tech delays caused my pre-interview to stretch to an hour. He was patient kind and supportive but memorably also remarkably perceptive, clear and engaging. He outlined five very good reasons he was not inclined at that time to support Obama's reelection. He praised Truman and JFK and pointed out with sadness that gentlemen of their views and his own are now absent from his party. In the end he did support Obama. He was a politician, after all. But it was fascinating to converse with a brilliant Senior man genuinely questioning his own deeply held beliefs. America sorely needs leaders with Ed Koch's personal integrity and introspection. He was unique and history will remember him with praise. RIP Mr. Mayor.
February 02, 2013
MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE,AMEN FR NIKKY.
February 02, 2013
REST IN PEACE MY GOD BLESS YOU. AND YOUR. FAMILY.

We remember fondly the Mayor especially when he popped out of the 77th Street subway entrance announcing that he was running for congressman and when he popped out of a cake to surprise his audience. He was love for his unique character.
February 02, 2013

Mr. Mayor,
I worked in NYC in summer of '83 and every so often, you'd give a speech on the steps of City Hall directly to the people eating their lunch. It was good to see a Mayor talking to the public directly. You came in at a hard time for NYC, but you made it survive and thrive and more friendly.
May you rest in peace, you deserve it.

BTW: "You are doing a great job"
February 01, 2013
The best out spoken Mayor Of the greatest city of New York. He truly cared for the people of New York state. God Bless you Mayor Koch. "Thanks for the Memories."

Our son Matthew was chosen as a recipient of the 1986 Mayor's Volunteer Youth Awards Program, but was unable to attend the award ceremony because he was terminally ill. When informed that Matthew could not travel to City Hall, Mayor Koch visited him at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
The Mayor and Matthew had a very friendly, upbeat and humorous conversation. Before he left the Mayor asked Matthew if he liked cheese cake and promised to send him one made by his personal chef. It arrived in Matthew's hospital room the next day and was shared by the pediatric patients and staff.
We will always remember Mayor Edward Koch's kindness to Matthew and his service to New York City. We extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
February 01, 2013
Sorry to hear of your loss...may you find comfort from our Heavenly Father, Jehovah. 1Cor. 1:3
February 01, 2013
Nice man, kind man-as mayor of New York during a dark time in its history, and a devoted public servant up until the time of his passing. He might be considered "the Fiorello" of this generation. Rest in Peace, Mr. Koch!
February 01, 2013
May God Bless him. My wife Mary Ann worked with him for many years and now they are both with the angels. He served the city well. It was a pleasure being in his company

Dear Mr. Mayor,
Even as a Bostonian, I too mourn your passing. I wish we had more politicians like you, neverincing words. May your memory be a blessing. Thanks for your service in WW2 and as an elected official .
February 01, 2013
How sad! I first met Mayor Koch during a Pulaskii Day parade years ago. I was from Oakland, CA, which had a very serious, unapproachable mayor, I was taking pictures of the Mummers, when a very funny man danced in front of my camera--I thought
he was one of my husband's eccentric uncles from Ozone Park.
Then people in the crowd said that I'd just met the Mayor of
NYC. I've had a soft spot for him ever since.
February 01, 2013
As a fellow native New Yorker, you embodied the spirit of New Yorkers. You told it like it was, never tried to sugar coat it and were not afraid of taking a controversial stand knowing it was right. We loved your honesty, humor and passion. Our Lord is truly lucky to have one of the best looking down on us.
February 01, 2013
Mayor Ed Koch,Their will never be another like you. May you rest in peace.
February 01, 2013

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
February 01, 2013
Thank you Mayor Koch for leading the city through an incredibly difficult time period. You embodied the spirit of the city and its people, and no one ever doubted that you loved both. I volunteered in your 1982 Campaign for Governor, and I still think you would have made just as good a Governor as you were a Mayor. You were always a pleasure to meet. How did you do?-Very well.
February 01, 2013
Rest in Peace, Mayor Koch. There is only one City you could ever have been Mayor of and, thankfully, that is my City. You will always be remembered.

Mayor Koch was "the people's mayor". New York City was the heart of him. He honored my Grandmother in 1984 for teaching English as a second language when she retired at age 84. He was the type of Democrat we need more of in this day and age.

Koch Family,

What an icon he was and will always be to me. He was my Mayor for the 20 years I resided in Brooklyn, New York. Mayor Koch dance to his on beat and was not afraid of a good fight. I will always remember his favorite saying, How am I doing? You did GREAT. Rest in peace Mayor Koch. Koch family, may each of you find strength and comfort in God's loving arm through your time of sorrow. My deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one.
Peace I leave unto each of you.
February 01, 2013
Ed Koch was one of the greatest American characters in our history. He defied pat descriptions and all his thoughts were derived from "sanity" and pragmatism. He was one of the most entertaining politicians of the 20th century, the TV news at 7 and 11 was never the same after he left office. Condolences to all of the bereaved.
February 01, 2013
REST IN PEACE....
February 01, 2013
I had the honor of working in Mr. Koch's 1970 Congressional campaign and all of his ensuing campaigns until he retired from electoral politics. He was the quintessential New Yorker and proud pride to his city, to his country, to his family and to his faith. He will be missed terribly by all who knew him.

My deepest sympathy is with his sister and all of his family.

God rest his soul.
February 01, 2013
Never met Mayor Koch, but always enjoyed reading and hearing his commentary.
What a wonderful and genuine American treasure! Unlike most national political figures, "Hizzonor" was always his own man!
I shall greatly miss Mayor Koch's sage wisdom and honest insight. He was a true patriot.
Rest in peace.....
February 01, 2013
RIP Thy good faithful servant for job well-done.

What a loss this is for all. You were a wonderful Mayor and a great politician. There was never a time in watching you, whether in politics or in television, that I did not learn something of value. In reading your obituary, I again gained valuable knowledge. You were an amazing man in so many ways and your passing will leave a huge void. Enjoy your next chapter.

February 01, 2013
I loved Ed Koch. My favorite moment was his response to the Secretary General of the UN, who was complaining that NYC didn't provide more police protection for a visit from Prince Charles (I think). The secretary said that if NY could afford more security for these occaisions the UN might consider moving out of NY. Koch responded with, "Hey, see ya!"
February 01, 2013
Blessed be his memory.
February 01, 2013
God bless you ~ Rest in peace.
February 01, 2013

February 01, 2013
I'm deeply sadden to know that former Mayor Ed Koch has passed. He was the first political figure to help me realize I had an opinion and a right to voice that opinion. He attended a city council meeting at the City of Midwood High School back in 1984 and I asked him to voice his opinion and plan regarding the poor conditions of mass transportation at the time. I was 14 years old and it was the first time I'd ever spoken to or challenged a political figure publicly. His acknowledgement and response triggered a continued lifetime of voicing my opinion and being heard. I now have a 14 year old son and I encourage him to be vocal and have an opinion. Ed Koch changed the face of New York City and brought us out of a very dark time socially and economically. My thanks to him for all he did for our great city...Your Honor, you done well!
February 01, 2013
One of a kind
February 01, 2013
So sorry for the loss of this tried and trusted man. My prayers are with his family.Thank you for you years of dedicated service to NYC.
