“Throughout his career, Koch was known for his Bronx-flavored bon mots. “If you agree with me on nine out of 12 issues, vote for me,” Koch once said. “If you agree with me on 12 out of 12 issues, see a psychiatrist.” “

To be honest Koch’s was not really a good mayor.

The article deals with AIDS but crime was also high under him and I don’t recall any major changes in how the city was run or transformed under Koch. Giuliani was really when the City changed for the better and that coincided with money coming in from the Clinton boom era on Wall Street.

re: #2 Destro

He stabilized the city’s budget and dealt with a 1980 transit strike in such a way as to curtail union radicalism without busting the unions themselves. He also authorized the public/private repair of Central Park that changed that place from an embarrassment back to an icon.

You are right that Guiliani’s tenure was when the tide truly turned, but had Ed Koch not preceded him, New York City might have become so dysfunctional as to be beyond saving.

Ed Koch was someone New York City needed.
