Blues and Jazz

Despite its strong beginnings, New York City is no longer the jazz mecca it once was.  Blues is also not as popular, and that has enthusiasts of both musical genres concerned.  On this week's Cityscape, we explore the state of jazz and blues in New York and efforts to preserve the music genres.

911 Birthdays

Nine years ago today, terrorists attacked.  The twin towers collapsed.  Nearly 3,000 people were killed.  However, amid the tragedies of 9/11, hope was literally born.  An estimated 10,000 American families welcomed a new baby into the world on September 11th, 2001.  A couple of those families share their stories on this week's Cityscape.

9/11 Health Perspective

Next Saturday marks the 9 year anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.   Over the past several years, we’ve heard a lot about the illnesses that have afflicted rescue and recovery workers who toiled at the site.  But, on this week's Cityscape, we focus more specifically on the plight of those who lived, worked and studied in the area around ground zero.  Our guests include a computer programmer who worked on the 68th floor of the south tower.  She developed asthma shortly after her exposure to 9/11 dust and debris.
