NEW YORK


Longtime New York political powerhouse Basil Paterson has died.

His family says Paterson died at Mount Sinai Hospital on Wednesday night, 11 days short of his 88th birthday.

Paterson served as a state senator, deputy New York City mayor and New York's first black secretary of state.

Survivors include his son, former Gov. David Paterson.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (KWOH'-moh) says Paterson's public leadership made New York a better place.

He was among the influential "Gang of Four" that included former Mayor David Dinkins, former Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton and Congressman Charles Rangel.

His family says Paterson was known throughout the community as a "man of action" who accomplished his goals.
