A collection of items belonging to Ed Koch will hit the auction block Monday.

Art and furniture from the late mayor's Greenwich Village home, as well as personal trinkets, will be open for bidding.

However, the real attractions are letters to the late mayor from some of the 20th century's top political figures.

Correspondence from President Ronald Reagan is included in the collection, as are an assortment of letters from President Bill Clinton printed on White House Stationery.

There's even a handwritten letter from President Jimmy Carter.

There are also letters from stars of the stage and screen, including Katharine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor.

Koch passed away in February.

The items are being sold at Doyle New York. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
