Glazed, sprinkled, frosted or plain – we all have a preference. Do you indulge once a day or save it for special occasions? Do you dunk it in coffee or eat it with a fork and knife?

You might not know it, but both presidents have historical roots right here in New York City. On this week's Cityscape, we’re celebrating Presidents Day by exploring moments of presidential history that took place in our own backyard.

New York City’s underground looks a little different from a groundhog’s burrow -- with miles of tunnels and infrastructure that lie deep beneath the city’s surface. On this week's Cityscape, we’re headed underground to explore the New York that exists just beneath our feet, from subway tunnels to buried historical treasures.
