Former Gov. Mario Cuomo will be memorialized at a funeral service in Manhattan later this morning.
Hundreds of mourners lined up for his wake yesterday. Many political leaders also attended, including Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden, House of Representatives minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY).
Earlier in the day, Schumer remembered the three-term governor, who was said to have never forgotten that he was a Roman Catholic kid from Queens.
