The Grand Central Station segment highlights the station's architecture, its history, and the various people involved in conserving the space, including architects and architectural conservators. The second segment presents a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process in producing the Harlem Nutcracker, from the perspectives of Donald Byrd, Choreographer, David Berger, Composer, and the ballet's dancers. After a brief "Selects" segment on 5 arts-related events and activities to do in the city, the third feature covers the programs and students at LaGuardia High School.
