Episode Info

A profile of former New York mayor Ed Koch (1924-2013), whose blunt, combative ways personified the city during his years in office (1978-'89). He restored the Big Apple's fiscal health and reduced crime, though not all were happy with his methods. The documentary also delves into his private life, including his friendship with former Miss America Bess Myerson; and the claims that he was gay. It also details his life post-office, when he was always happy to share his opinions on TV and radio.
