New York City will rename a subway station in memory of Edward Koch, the three-term mayor who died last week.

U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) will announce Monday that the station at East 77th Street and Lexington Avenue will be renamed the Mayor Ed Koch Subway Station, the Associated Press reported.

Koch, who died Feb. 1 at 88, will be buried Monday in Manhattan following a funeral service at a the Temple Emanu El Reform synagogue. Former President Bill Clinton, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Israel's consul general in New York, Ido Aharoni, are all scheduled to speak.
