The etymology of probably the most overused word in the English language.
Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch passed away on February 1st at the age of 88. Taking office in the late Seventies, when the city was largely considered broken down and in need of a renewed spirit, Koch took on crime and graffiti, budget problems, and affordable housing needs, as well as — infamously to many — the AIDS epidemic and race relations. This week on BTR Pulse, we ask New Yorkers how Koch and his three terms will be remembered.
