Koch comes back to Loisaida
Ed Koch paid a visit to the Sixth Street Community Center Tuesday afternoon to take a look at Viva Loisiada, Marlis Mombers exhibit of her photographs of the Lower East Side from the 1960s and 70s. Momber, shown above with Koch, invited Hizzoner by to sign one of the photos that showed him and activists in 1987 at a City Hall ceremony at which he signed legislation co-naming Avenue C Loisaida Avenue. Koch inscribed the photo Hooray You Won, recognizing the activists efforts to name their community. The Villager recently profiled Momber and her show.
