An exploration of obesity in New York City.

Research shows the majority of adults in New York City are overweight or obese and the statistics for children aren't much rosier. Studies show 4 in 10 elementary school children are in the same category.

On this week's Cityscape, we look into why obesity is such a problem and what city officials are doing to address the matter.
