From the acclaimed producers of Radio Diaries and WNYC's The Next Big Thing, New York Works tells the stories of those people who keep the city's past alive. 94-year old Selma Koch runs one of New York's last old-style bra-fitting shops. Walter Backerman still delivers seltzer along the same route worked by his father and grandfather. Frank Sabatino is one of two commercial fisherman left in Jamaica Bay. Charlie Zimmerman builds the rooftop water tanks that dot Manhattan's skyline. All of these stories and more make up this poignant look inside the history and culture that keep New York City as vibrant and alive as ever.
