New York City’s constantly evolving. But, there are some institutions in the city that have stood the test of time. This year marks the 100th anniversary of at least three of them – Grand Central Terminal, the Woolworth Building in Lower Manhattan and El Diaro – the nation’s longest publishing Spanish language daily newspaper. On this week's Cityscape, we're exploring the history and impact of all three New York City staples.

You might be familiar with the names Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux -- they're the creators of Central Park. But, have you ever heard of John Randel Jr.? This often unrecognized 19th century genius also played an instrumental role in the development of the New York City we know and love today. Learn all about the guy who plotted Manhattan's famous street grid on this week's Cityscape. We'll also talk with a modern-day surveyor in New York City.

Valentine’s Day -- the holiday celebrating love and friendship – is this Thursday.  But, what is it that attracts people to one another?  Relationship experts often say it comes down to having good chemistry. 

This week we talk with author Leil Lowndes about her book on chemistry in relationships, as well as chemistry from entirely different perspectives. We're joined by Doctor Robert Lefkowitz, a professor at Duke University Medical Center and a winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. We also visit Willner Chemists, a nutritional store that has been around for over 100 years.

Spring is still a ways away -- meaning many more days of potentially cold weather. But, instead of complaining about it, we’re doing something about it. We’re devoting this half-hour of Cityscape to thinking warm. We'll warm up with segments on knitting, quilting, hot chocolate and hot yoga.
