Tonight's episode takes a look back at Season 5 of our show. First, two pieces highlight the current wave of gentrification sweeping through Brooklyn, then we show how the country’s poverty crisis is manifesting through lengthening food pantry lines. Next, we take a look at the damage Superstorm Sandy had on one ethnic media owner. We then show how French dual language courses are making their way from kindergarten to high school. Finally, we wrap with a feature a story on the origins of Mahjong.
