A story we’ve been following closely in recent days has been former New York City Mayor Ed Koch’s re-admission to the hospital. Earlier this week, the Hizzoner was admitted to the hospital for the fourth time since September, just days after being released last week.

Complaining of water in his lungs again, Koch, who just turned 88, has now been moved to intensive care. This is a developing story. We’ll update accordingly.
