On this special edition we look at developments along NYC’s approximately 520 miles of linear waterfront. The show features a look at the new Empire Outlets mall on Staten Island’s north shore that’s expected to be a benefit to the community. Then we head to Industry City in Brooklyn, where the billion dollar development is being accused of displacing long-time residents. The next piece highlights the debate over the future of the Sheridan Expressway, a short strip of road in the Bronx that connects to the interstate highway system. Then finally we hear how the city’s response to climate change could leave a popular park buried under 10 feet of dirt.
DiverseCITY highlights the beautiful mosaic that is New York, one neighborhood at a time. The monthly series features a bit of history, shares community issues of concern, and profiles businesses that are unique to their neighborhood. The show hopes to familiarize New Yorkers with their neighboring communities.
