On this edition, we learn how the Feast of San Gennaro is being celebrated a decade after 9/11. We get a preview of some dandy fashions for women and hear how some Brooklynites are making their own fashion statement. We meet some techies who want to make New York the video game capital of the world and a family that makes ordinary objects elegant. Plus, we hear from musicians who are helping Haitians and Dominicans find common ground.
