Ups and Downs


Ups and downs in New York City, including tales from an elevator operator. 

We all experience ups and downs in life – some more than others.  Take Craig Lippman – an elevator operator on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, who quite frankly, has lost track of his ups and downs.

Lippman operates a freight elevator at the Ansonia.  He shares the "ups and downs" of his job on this morning's Cityscape.  We also talk with a woman who lived in a 6th floor walk up for 2 years and check out a museum that explores the financial markets' ups and downs through the years.
