We're exploring the idea of aliens in NYC.

The Hollywood blockbuster, Men In Black, tells the story of two men who keep an eye on aliens in New York City.  But, how much of a stretch is that movie?  On this week's Cityscape, we’re exploring the concept of aliens in New York City. 

We'll talk with a Brooklyn man who established a U-F-O hotline for New Yorkers to report sightings, revisit the 1938 radio broadcast War of the Worlds with a New Yorker who penned a kids' book about it, and learn all about the "aliens of the sea," jellyfish.
