As Halloween creeps closer, this week we’re exploring New York's creepy side with J.W. Ocker, author of The New York Grimpendium: A Guide to Macabre and Ghastly Sites in New York State. Also, forget trick or treating -- the founders of a Brooklyn-based candy company will tell us how to make candy in our very own kitchens. Jen King and Liz Gutman of Liddabit Sweets are out with a new candy cookbook.

With election day inching closer and closer, we’re focusing our attention on presidential politics on this week's Cityscape. We'll talk with an NYU religious studies professor about the role faith plays in politics. We'll also check in with a presidential studies professor at Hofstra University about the impact debates have on White House runs. And, we'll talk with a New York City-based artist who is making his creative voice heard this election season with an exhibit titled Your Land/My Land: Election ’12. The exhibit is being staged simultaneously at museums across the U.S., including at the New Museum in New York City.

People spend a lot of time on the streets of Manhattan looking up at the skyscrapers that surround them. But not many people get to look at the city from above unless it’s from an observatory like the one at the Empire State Building or on Top of the Rock. On this week's Cityscape we’re seeing the city through the lens of two photographers with different vantage points. Alex MacLean photographs the city from the air and Stewart Mader captures unique views of New York (and occasionally other cities) from rooftops, balconies, and other vantage points above the street.
