Chalk art and more on this week's Cityscape.

On this week's Cityscape, we’re exploring chalk as a powerful tool for communication and self-expression.  The show includes:

  • An interview with a sidewalk artist.
  • A look at a program in Northern Manhattan that uses chalk art to spread a message about living a healthy lifestyle.
  • A look at why doctors on Ellis Island put chalk marks on immigrants they deemed ill.
