Ed Koch became mayor of NYC the same year - 1978 - that I first moved to Manhattan, and he remained mayor until 1989. For me, those were the City Rock years, the beginning of my career as a social worker and psychotherapist. For the first five of those years, I was a single young man living in a cold-water flat with a bathtub in the kitchen and a toilet in a water closet in the hall of the building on the Lower East Side. I don't make any claims about New York City in the Eighties, or of Koch as a mayor, other than that he was a memorable character who loved to ask: "How'm'I doin'?". Guess he wasn't ready for 5D, though. Bye Mr. Mayor!
