He was one of the great politicians, always a pleasure to listen to. His speeches were wonderful.
When I first came to New York City, he was our governor. I revelled in his oratory. Covering an event with Cuomo was never dull.
In 1987, I went to the University of Massachusetts to photograph Mario Cuomo as he met with Michael Dukakis as they decided which of them would run for president.
His death is a terrible loss to New York politics and happening on what should have been a happy day for his family as Andrew was taking his oath of office for his second term.
Our condolences go to his family.
