5 segments
Would you say you’re in the middle class, but are rarely able to save? Do you spend more than half of your income on essentials? You’re hardly alone. We’ll talk with former mayoral candidate Freddy Ferrer—now president of The Drum Major Institute, which released a study today showing that New York is becoming a city of the very rich and the very poor. Plus, the unlikely congressional ambitions of a Nuyorican building super, and fictional & nonfiction takes on the interplay of religion and psychology.
