Ed Koch Dies

New York lost an icon Friday morning when for mayor Ed Koch died. He was 88. I had the privilegeĀ of interviewing Koch several years ago. I told him it was an honor to meet him and that I always voted for him. He responded, “Then why did I lose?!”

Anyway, here are a couple of Mets-related photos:
