It's "game back on" for an indie arcade gallery and bar in Brooklyn. Wonderville is now open again after shutting down amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
On this week's Cityscape, we’ll plug into the history of Wonderville with the creative couple who brought the concept to life.
 
Also, T-shirt weather will be here before you know it. One New York City shop likes to keep things old school when it comes to the tee. Metropolis Vintage is known for its collection of vintage concert and band T-shirts. Owner Richard Colligan joins us to talk about the history of the shop, how it’s been managing in the pandemic and, of course, their tees.

Born and raised in Greenwich Village, and still living there today, Donna Florio has amassed a collection of tales about her life on Bank Street.
 
Over the years she's encountered a large cast of characters, from Sid Vicious of Sex Pistols fame, to John Lennon and Yoko Ono, to activist and politiician Bella Abzug. But, her new memoir Growing Up Bank Street, also shares heartwarming and fascinating stories about her lesser-known neighbors, like Tisch, a female-impersonator who became a life-long friend.
 
Donna is our guest on this week's Cityscape.

Breathing is something a lot of us take for granted, but our guest on this week’s Cityscape says the way in which we breathe, could improve our physical health and state of mind, and not just during a crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Dr. Richard Brown is an Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and co-author of “The Healing Power of the Breath.” Dr. Brown teaches advanced breath techniques to help people relieve stress and  improve mood, mental focus, empathy and performance.

Our interview with him as part of WFUV’s Strike a Chord campaign focused on efforts to help improve our mental and emotional well-being.
