Feb 1 (Reuters) - Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch, an iconic and often polarizing figure, died on Friday at the age of 88.
The brash, quick-witted Koch, known for his trademark phrase "How'm I Doin?," served three terms as mayor, leaving office in 1989 only to emerge as a columnist, movie reviewer, pitchman and television judge. [ID :PnL1N0B11GI]
