Ed Koch Dies, ‘Koch’ Documentary Released in Theaters Today

Ed Koch, who served as New York City mayor for three terms and in Congress for eight years, died today at the age of 88. There’s plenty of obituaries floating around the internet this morning—I can recommend the lengthy New York Times obit as well as the to-the-point one over at The Awl—and you’ll likely see some thought-provoking Tumblr posts from people who have personal stories to share in context of Koch’s passing. (I’ll be working on one about The People’s Court and my lost childhood.) Koch’s passing comes, oddly, on the same day as Neil Barsky’s documentary about the larger-than-life public figure. Check out the trailer after the jump.
