Main Street NYC


Over the past year, WNYC reporters have made repeated visits to six area neighborhoods: the Bowery in Manhattan, 161st St. in the Bronx, Smith St. in Brooklyn, Main St. in Flushing, Victory Blvd. in Staten Island, and Grove St. in New Jersey. We've been talking to local businesses and residents about how the economic downturn is being experienced at street level. Below is a look back at all of our Main Street NYC features.
