Former three term mayor of New York Ed Koch died at the age of  88, on Friday February 1, 2013 of congested heart failure.

The late mayor was known for taking New York City out of near bankruptcy in the late 70's -80's. He also received  negative reviews for his lack of support for minority and Gay New Yorkers. According to the Huffington post, the Rev. Al Sharpton said in a statement that although they disagreed on many things, Koch "was never a phony or a hypocrite. He would not patronize or deceive you. He said what he meant. He meant what he said. He fought for what he believed. May he rest in peace."
