Description
This episode of New York Voices begins with a segment entitled, "The Newest New Yorkers," and highlights voices of immigrants to New York as they become American citizens. Immigration expert Phil Kasinitz of Hunter College talks about balancing New York's vital immigration population against calls for public safety through increased scrutiny of foreigners. Debbie Almontaser, a Muslim elementary teacher, discusses coping after 9/11, her decision to open her home to neighbors, and her outreach to fellow teachers to help Arabic children in the school system overcome fear and shame about their religion and ethnicity. Katheryn Wylde of the New York Partnership describes the financial recovery assessment plan set into motion hours after 9/11. John Whitehead, head of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, discusses the plans to develop the World Trade Center site, the struggles ahead to bring the area back economically, and the plans for building a permanent memorial.
New York Voices is a news magazine made up of segments featuring profiles and interviews with New Yorkers talking about the issues affecting New York.
