Anti-Semitic hate crimes have been on the rise in New York City. In fact, the NYPD reports that they're the most common type of hate crime in the Big Apple. 

On this week's Cityscape, two faith leaders share their thoughts on the rise of anti-Semitism in New York City, as well as the role they think progressive communities of faith should play in combatting hate. 

Our guests are: 

  • Reverend Brett Younger, Senior Minister at Plymouth Church in Brooklyn Heights
  • Serge Lippe, Senior Rabbi at Brooklyn Heights Synagogue

Many of the neighborhoods in New York City’s five boroughs have a rich and storied history, including Parkchester in the eastern Bronx.

Parkchester was built as a planned community. It opened in 1940 and was celebrated as a “city within a city.” But, the neighborhood’s early history involved the exclusion of African Americans and Latinos. It was a “whites only” development until the late 1960s.

Author Jeffery Gurock takes readers through the history of Parkchester in his new book Parkchester: A Bronx Tale of Race and Ethnicity. Gurock is our guest on this week's Cityscape.

Hurricanes and blizzards can sweep in quickly without a lot of time to prepare. But when a crisis hits, there are ways to be ready for it. And thankfully, when we’re caught completely off guard, there are organizations to help us pick up the pieces.
 
We’re very pleased to be teaming up with Bronxnet for our latest campaign focused on emergency preparedness, response and recovery. Joining us for this 1/2 hour discussion are two people on the front lines of helping people prepare for and recover from disasters: 
 
  • Allison Pennisi is Director of Communications for NYC Emergency Management.
  • Neil Glassman is a Team Rubicon coordinator. Team Rubicon utilizes the skills and experiences of military veterans to help disaster survivors and their communities.

Basketball is a staple activity in New York City. From large venues like Madison Square Garden to local neighborhood courts, you’re bound to find a game of hoops going on. This week, we’re stepping off the court and taking a look at it from behind the lens. 
 
Larry Racioppo is a NYC-based photographer. He’s a regular guest on Cityscape, and this time he’s here to talk about his new book, B-Ball NYC. It features basketball courts in all five boroughs of New York, from traditional hoops to homemade ones, some dating back decades.
