Affordable Housing

As part of WFUV's Strike a Chord campaign, this week's Cityscape is all about affordable housing.  We'll get into the nitty gritty of what that term means in New York City, talk to the city's housing commissioner about efforts to build and preserve affordable housing and take a step inside an affordable housing complex in midtown Manhattan that some say is nothing short of a miracle.

Bronx Movie Magic

The Bronx is a borough that conjures up a wide variety of images…Hip Hop...the Yankees…the Zoo…and if you’re of a certain age, you might think of the urban decay of the 1970’s and 80’s.  Over the years, Hollywood has helped to perpetuate many of the negative images of the Bronx, but it’s also shown the borough’s brighter side.  On this week's Cityscape, an exploration of the Bronx on the big screen.  Also this week, a look back at the history of what was once the Bronx's grandest movie theater...the Loew's Paradise.

The Underwear Show

On this week's Cityscape, we're undressing New York City, so to speak.  We're talking with New Yorkers who make a living by making, selling and wearing underwear.  We'll meet someone who's been fitting women in bras for more than 30 years, a family who's been making men's underwear for four generations and a Bronx man who earns a buck modeling underwear.
