Looking at death from different perspectives

Death – a lot of us try to avoid the subject at all costs, but it’s the one inevitable parts of life.

On this week's Cityscape, we're exploring death from a variety of perspectives, including that of 19th century New York City. We'll also hear from a New York Times obituary writer and talk with an expert in end-of-life planning at Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx.
