NEW YORK (PIX11/AP) — New York said farewell to the state's three-term governor, Mario Cuomo, at a wake in Manhattan Monday.

A line stretched out of the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home on Madison Avenue, where the wake was scheduled from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Cuomo's funeral is at 11 a.m. Tuesday at St. Ignatius Loyola Church on Park Avenue.

He died Thursday evening, hours after his son, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, was inaugurated for a second term.

Andrew Cuomo is postponing his state-of-the-state address until Jan. 21. It had been scheduled for Wednesday.
