Each week Cityscape explores the people, places and spirit of New York City in new and unique ways. We journey to fascinating places and meet interesting people, but we wouldn’t be able to do that without support from listeners who appreciate this kind of programming. On this week's edition of Cityscape, we're revisiting some of our favorite segments while asking for your support. Segments include an interview with the woman who runs the troll museum on Manhattan's Lower East Side, an in-studio performance from The New York Holiday Singers, and a look into the city's beer history and culture. **DISCLAIMER** This show was recorded to air on December 15, 2012, but in light of the deadly shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, our fund drive was postponed.

If you could go back to the time before the sprawling skyscrapers of today’s New York City, you’d find a different city, full of horse drawn carriages and men in hats and dark suits. In other cases you’d see that some parts of the city haven’t changed much at all. An architectural photographer recreated scenes from turn of the century photos by climbing, flying and leaning over precarious structures to capture images from the same spot as his earlier counterparts. He presents the old and new photos side by side in a book called New York Then and Now. Evan Joseph is our guest on this week's Cityscape.

New York City’s filled with people of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities and backgrounds. Many are born and bred here. Others move to the big city to fulfill their dreams. Former Mayor Ed Koch once said you’re a true New Yorker after living in the Big Apple for at least 10 years. But, nevertheless, battles sometimes erupt over when you can say you’re from New York despite your place of origin. This week we’re hearing from a born and bred New Yorker, a transplant, and a writer who lived in New York City, left and isn’t looking back.
