The Jobless

A couple of years ago, when the economy took a turn for the worse, a lot of people found themselves out of work.  Today, the unemployment numbers are a bit rosier.  But, while some people are saying the worst of the recession is over, the jobless have an entirely different story to tell.  As part of WFUV's Strike a Chord campaign on the jobless, Cityscape this week delves into issues facing unemployed people and programs in place to help them get their lives back on track.

Alphabet City

Not so long ago, the name Alphabet City stirred up images of squatters, vacant lots, drug dealers, and burned-out buildings. These days the neighborhood's known for high-priced real estate, stylish bars, funky shopping, and the upwardly mobile.  On this week's Cityscape, we're taking an in-depth look at the past and present of the Manhattan neighborhood around Avenues A, B, C and D, from 14th Street to Houston Street.
