Cityscape: The Bronx Remembered

The Bronx has been experiencing a development boom in recent years with a number of projects sprouting up across the borough, from new hotels to shopping malls. But, it was only a few decades ago when arson fires, rampant crime and poverty made the borough a national symbol of urban decay.

On this week's Cityscape, we’re revisiting the Bronx in different eras.  We'll talk with author Avery Corman about his new memoir My Old Neighborhood Remembered, as well with Photographer Stephen Shames about his new book, Bronx Boys.

All About Elevators

New York is a city of high-rises – and the buildings here keep getting taller and taller as the years go by.  Have you seen the 90-story condo and hotel tower that went up on West 57th Street in Manhattan?  That and every other skyscraper in the city would never have gotten off the ground if it weren’t for one invention – the elevator.

Without that technological innovation buildings would have likely been stunted at around 6 floors.  On this episode of Cityscape, we're delving into the history of the elevator with the founder of the Elevator Historical Society in Long Island City, Queens. We''ll also be bringing you a couple of other elevator-related segments.

A lot of research has been conducted over the years on the risks and benefits of being on either side of the height spectrum.  For example, studies have shown that taller people score slightly higher on IQ tests than shorter people, and are more likely to be bitten by bugs than their vertically-challenged counterparts.  On the other hand, research shows short people are more likely to outlive their taller peers, but are still at a greater risk of developing heart disease.  On this week's Cityscape, we’re exploring what it’s like to be tall and short in New York City.  Our guests include the president of the Tall Club of New York City and Peter Manning, the founder of a Brooklyn-based clothing line for men 5'8" and under.  We'll also talk with Joshua Fischer with Snap Interactive, maker of the on-line dating site AYI.com about a survey that shows short men in New York City have trouble finding dates.
