Mayor Bloomberg gave something of a mini-eulogy about his friend Ed Koch, whom he described as the quintessential New Yorker, who loved his job, who never avoided telling friend or foe, exactly what he thought, like it or not.

Also, giving tribute to former Mayor Koch was city Council Speaker, Christine Quinn, who is widely rumored to be running for mayor at the end of Bloomberg’s term.
