Ed Koch's coffin exits to 'New York, New York'
NEW YORK – Ed Koch couldn't have chosen a more appropriate final farewell to New York City.
An organist played "New York, New York," the iconic ballad made famous by Frank Sinatra, in a Manhattan synagogue Monday as the former mayor's oak coffin was carried past thousands of mourners, concluding a funeral that recalled the quintessential New Yorker's famous one-liners and amusing antics in the public eye.
Koch died Friday of congestive heart failure at age 88.
