Adrian Benepe talks about his long career with the parks department, and more.

Saturday is “It’s My Park Day” in New York City -- an annual event in which New Yorkers give a little back to their favorite parks. 

Residents in all five boroughs will be taking time to spruce up parks and playgrounds in their neighborhoods.  It’s volunteer efforts like this one that New York City Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe says make a big difference in the care and upkeep of parks. Commissioner Benepe is our guest on this week's Cityscape.  He'll talk with us about the state of the city’s parks system and a whole bunch more, including how music helps to inspire him to build and maintain parks.
