A Hanukkah tale and the story of neon in NYC on this week's Cityscape.

Hanukkah,the festival of lights, begins at sundown Saturday.  On this week's Cityscape, a renowned storyteller and a singer-guitarist combine their talents to share a Hanukkah tale.

Also this week, they say the neon lights are bright on Broadway.  But, Times Square is not the only place in New York City where neon lights shine brightly.  Architectural designer Thomas Rinaldi spent a number of years cataloging neon signs around the city.  Signs that are slowly disappearing as lighting technology changes.  Rinaldi joins us to talk about his new book appropriately titled New York Neon.
