From Central Park to the Brooklyn Bridge to the New York Botanical Garden, New York City is home to many places that provide the perfect backdrop for a wedding.

On this week's Cityscape, we're talking with a wedding officiant and a wedding musician about their roles in helping to create the perfect day for happy couples.

We'll also talk with writer John Kenney about life after the "I Do's." Kenney has penned a collection of poems for, well, married people, called Love Poems for Married People.

New York City's identity as a cultural center is drastically changing, that's according to the founder and executive artistic director of 3-Legged Dog Media and Theater Group, Kevin Cunningham.

Cunningham has served as a linchpin of Lower Manhattan's art scene for more than 20 years. But, his group is on the move to Brooklyn and to developing a new virtual studio model.

Cunningham talks about his group's past and plans for the future on this week's Cityscape.

In a city like New York, pharmacies are a dime a dozen. Duane Reade, Walgreens, and CVS pharmacies dot the blocks of the five boroughs. But if you look a little closer, there are some pharmacies that stand out among the rest.

On this week’s Cityscape we step inside Stanley’s Pharmacy, a place that’s very different from your typical medicine shop.

Retired conductor David Dworkin is nearing 85 years old. But, he’s as active as ever, and doing his part to help other older adults remain active as well. Dworkin is the founder of an exercise program called Conductorcise. It’s an aerobic workout, symphonic experience and music history lesson all rolled into one. We recently caught up with Dworkin at a senior living facility in Manhattan to talk with him about his program. Our chat is part of WFUV's Strike a Chord campaign on healthy aging.
