Synopsis:

Living For The City is a program focusing on telling stories—our histories, 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 real estate industry and the very powerful lobbyists.  We look at housing, land air and water use including sunlight and we do so truthfully, accurately and without any conflicts of interest.
