Synopsis:

Living For The City is a program focusing on telling the stories--our stories, our perspectives--of local communities throughout our area, and beyond. If you have lived in NYC for any length of time, you know how difficult it is to get the media to report about a subject in-depth, tell the truth or even cover an issue. We examine those very issues--especially dealing with the power of the real estate lobby, housing and land use--truthfully, accurately and without any conflicts of interest or loyalties, and without kowtowing to the influence of, or pressure from the narrow prism of the mainstream media.
