New York City is famous for its skyscrapers like the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and One World Trade Center. But this week, we’re looking at buildings a little shorter than those prominent structures.

Our guest is Adam Friedberg, a New York City-based photographer. His new project is the Single-Story Project, which is currently on display at the Center for Architecture in Manhattan. It highlights single-story buildings in the East Village and Lower East Side.

New York City is home to famously unique bookstores like the Strand, Argosy Bookstore, and the Drama Book Shop. But it’s no mystery why one specialty bookstore in NYC has been open for forty years. 
 
The Mysterious Bookshop is one of the oldest and largest mystery fiction specialty bookstores in the United States. It was originally located in midtown when it opened in 1979, but it now calls Tribeca home. We joined Otto Penzler, the owner, at the shop to talk about the store’s collection of whodunits.

In a city like New York, it’s hard to imagine anywhere that’s not bustling with people. But, a new book explores sections of the city, Queens in particular, that are much less traveled. 
 
In his new book Abandoned Queens, Richard Panchyk takes us to places that are a bit off the beaten trail like the old Flushing Airport site and what he calls the lost neighborhood of Edgemere in the Rockaways. He's our guest on this week's Cityscape.

In New York State, 400,000 people are living with Alzheimer’s Disease, and an additional one million people are tending to them with unpaid care.

But help is available from organizations like Sunnyside Community Services. The nonprofit runs Care NYC, a services and support program for caregivers available to English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole speakers across New York City.

Our guests this week are Roy Capps, the Caregiver Educator for Care NYC and Carma Augustin, who’s caring for her mom with Alzheimer's.
