New York City is rich with history -- a lot of which is well-documented in books and museums. But, when Hugh Ryan went on the hunt to find out about Brooklyn’s queer history, he struggled. So he took it upon himself to uncover that past. The result is his book When Brooklyn Was Queer. Hugh joins us on this week's Cityscape to talk about it.

In New York City, one out of three children under the age of 18 is growing up without a father. That’s according to the New York City Young Men’s Initiative. And that number climbs to 51 percent for black children and 46 percent for Latino children.

The Fatherhood Initiative at Rising Ground in the Bronx is working to turn things around. Nearly 300 fathers have successfully completed the program, which encourages struggling fathers to be more involved with their kids.

On this week's Cityscape, we're talking with Reginald Mitchell, head of the Fatherhood Initiative at Rising Ground, and D'ron Waldron, a father of four and a graduate of the program.

There’s much more to New York City than meets the eye. But, a lot of us are too consumed looking at our smartphones to take notice of it.

Not Stanley Greenberg, however. He’s a Brooklyn-based photographer with a lifelong curiosity about urban infrastructure.

Stanley’s published four books, including Invisible New York: The Hidden Infrastructure of the City and Waterworks: A Photographic Journey through New York’s Hidden Water System.

His latest project is called Codex New York: Typologies of the City.

Stanley Greenberg is our guest on this week's Cityscape.
