Every week WFUV's Cityscape brings you stories about the people, places, and spirit of New York. It's our own weekly love letter to this great city.  In conjunction with WFUV's Spring membership drive, we’ve prepared some of our favorite segments about the fascinating places we’ve explored and interesting characters we’ve met along the way, from the woman who runs a troll museum on Manhattan's Lower East Side to the volunteers who ring the bells in the tower of Trinity Church in Lower Manhattan.

A mask is a barrier between ourselves and the world. It conceals our identity and can free us in some way from our societal restrictions.  Think about how liberated people sometimes feel on Halloween.  On this week's Cityscape, we’re talking about masks, and our fascination with them.  We'll look at how masks are created and used in performance, as well as why some people wear metaphorical masks every day to protect themselves.

At last, the weather is starting to warm up, providing more of an incentive to get out for a walk, or maybe even a bike ride.  On this week’s Cityscape, we’ll talk with a guy on a path to walk every street in New York City, and another guy who biked his way from Brooklyn to Hudson Falls – 500 miles away.  Tales from that journey are captured in a new book -- Conversations on the Hudson: An Englishman bicycles five hundred miles through the Hudson Valley, meeting artists and craftspeople along the way.

False accusations cover a wide spectrum. Maybe someone has mistaken you for a celebrity, or maybe someone spread a rumor about you. But some false accusations have long and lasting consequences.  On this week's Cityscape, we’re exploring the most extreme types of false accusations -- those that result in wrongful imprisonment.
