    (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File)New York, NY – Ed Koch, the former mayor of New York who died last month at age 88, left the majority of his estate to his sister.

    According to a will filed on Monday, Koch gave Pat Thaler and her husband $500,000 cash and all his personal belongings not earmarked elsewhere.

    Koch also gave $100,000 to his longtime secretary and another $100,000 to the LaGuardia and Wagner Educational Fund to create a program bearing his name to promote public and government service. He also donated some photographs and memorabilia to the New-York Historical Society.

    Koch’s brash, humor-tinged style came to personify the New York of the 1980s.

    The Democratic mayor is credited with helping save New York from its economic crisis in the 1970s and leading it to financial rebirth.
