Ed Koch dies at 88Graffiti // Monday, 04 Feb 2013
Ed Koch who was a three-term mayor of New York City in the 80’s passed away this past Friday. Koch was a hated mayor among New York graffiti writers, notably due to his appearances in the influential film Style Wars where he expressed his distaste and determination to combat graffiti. He hilariously suggested putting wolves in between two fences to detour graffiti writers from hitting the MTA trains. "Put in wolves because there's no reported case of a wolf in the wild state ever attacking a human being in North America—it's happened elsewhere, but not in North America” said Koch. RIP.
