Former New York Mayor Ed Koch Remembered As N.Y. Icon

Posted: Updated:

He was a very symbol of the city itself: brash, brave, funny, outspoken and sharp.

He was known as a combative, acid-tongued politician who rescued New York City from near financial ruin during his three-terms as mayor.

But Ed Koch's health had declined recently.

The former mayor died early Friday morning of congestive heart failure at a New York hospital.

Koch, a Democrat, was known as a combative politician who rescued the city from near-financial ruin.

He was also known as an outspoken supporter of Israel.

The funeral will be Monday in Manhattan.

Koch was 88-years-old.

Fox News senior correspondent Eric Shawn takes a look back at Koch's life in this video report.
