Former Mayor Koch items up for auction

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Former Mayor Ed Koch's furniture, books and letters are going on the auction block in New York City.

Doyle New York is auctioning the items over two days. Furniture, decorations and art from Koch's Greenwich Village apartment are being offered Monday. The three-term mayor's letters and books will go on sale Nov. 25.

Koch died in February at the age of 88.

Among Monday's highlights is a thank-you letter from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

The session also includes Koch's burgundy leather club chair and ottoman, estimated to bring $300.

Other items include his dining room table and chairs designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The pre-sale estimate is $6,000.

Next Monday, the highlights include a framed copy of a 1948 letter from Harry Truman recognizing the newly established state of Israel.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York City's horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years. A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues.
