New York in the World
This documentary brings you stories of union workers in Buffalo, fashion designers in New York City, and farmers in the Finger Lakes - all talking about how they've found a place amid today's new economic realities.
From Niagara Falls to Long Island, from the North Country to the Southern Tier, Upstate, Downstate... we are nearly twenty million.
The concerns we New Yorkers voice about our lives and future are shared by Americans across the country. But New York is special. In this era of globalization, no other state has benefited as much - and suffered as much - as New York. From the bonuses, bailouts and wealth on Wall Street - to the remains of once mighty manufacturing industries in much of the rest of the state... This is New York in the World: our lives, our future.
This documentary, "New York in the World" with Garrick Utley is a production of WRVO Public Media.
