It’s not uncommon for a teen-ager to experience growing pains.  But, a lot of them ride it out, sometimes with the help of their parents.  But, not all kids have a support system, and home is the last place they’ll turn to for help. On this week's Cityscape, we focus our attention on runaway and homeless youth in New York City.

Bugging Out

They’re all around us…in our homes, in our places of work, in our backyards, and in the air…what are we talking about?  Insects.  On this week's Cityscape, we're exploring the world of bugs.  We'll talk with the author of a new book called Insectopedia, visit a Manhattan eatery that serves grasshoppers (and eat them too), talk with a Brooklyn artist who dabbles in insect photography and meet a pair of professional "insect-pinners" in SoHo.

Remember the decade that brought us Dallas and the DeLorean, Madonna and MTV, Cats, the Rubik's Cube and the fitness craze?  That’s right…you’re probably getting flashbacks of the 1980s!  On this week's Cityscape, we’re taking a look back at the 1980s – the fashion, the hair, the films and the music of that decade!

The Lindsay Years

John Lindsay’s tumultuous two terms as mayor of New York City were marked by strikes, racial divisions and fiscal problems.  And more than 40 years later, his legacy remains as mixed as ever.  On this week's Cityscape, we look back on the Lindsay era.  Our guests include New York Times Urban Affairs Correspondent, Sam Roberts and Tom Casciato, the Executive Producer of a new public television documentary called Fun City Revisited: The Lindsay Years.

Complaints in the City

If you live in New York City, it’s more than likely you’ve called the oft-dialed 3-1-1 to complain about whatever’s fraying your nerves.  On this week's Cityscape, we'll get a first hand look at the 3-1-1 call center in Lower Manhattan and talk with two call service representatives.  We'll also talk with a woman on the front lines in the fight against noise, the most common quality of life complaint in New York City.  And we'll chat with the author of the New York City Museum of Complaint, a collection of 132 letters written to the Mayor of New York between 1751 and 1969.
