Koch (2012)

Director: Neil Barsky. 100 min. Not Rated. Documentary.

I last visited New York City in my childhood in 1980. The city was a graffiti-strewn crime-ridden dump, where I tried best to avoid. Visiting it again 20 years later, it had become one of the loveliest cities on the planet. The reason for the change... was Ed Koch. During his 12 years as mayor, he struggled with the city's looming 70s bankruptcy, subway strikes, housing disaster, and a new epidemic called AIDS - and with his own faults a successes, kept asking: "How'm I doin'?" If you've ever been around the Big Apple, you'll love this documentary. I did.

PS: Ed Koch passed away this past February.
