This weekend marks the Titanic centennial.

A hundred years ago this weekend, the RMS Titanic hit an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic as it made its way from Southampton to New York City.  It was the ship’s maiden voyage, and a century later the story of the tragedy still captures people’s imaginations. 

On this week's Cityscape, we're exploring New York City's connections to Titanic.  We'll hear about how New York City reacted to the news of the disaster, explore some of the Titanic memorials in the city, and learn about where some of the Titanic victims and survivors are buried in the five boroughs.
