Classic Koch: Remembering a New York legend

Mayor Ed Koch, who died today at age 88, is one of the most quotable New Yorkers we've ever met

"What a great city! Very few of them like this. In fact, there's none." That's Ed Koch from a profile on 60 Minutes, talking about the city where he was born and raised -- and then served as mayor for three terms.

Mayor Koch -- as much a part of New York City as a pastrami on rye -- died today at age 88. On 60 Minutes Overtime, we remember the mayor with a few clips from our 1978 profile of the quotable Koch.
