On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Zyphus Lebrun, we find out why New Yorkâ€™s child poverty rates are higher than anywhere else in the United States. We learn about a recently published book that shows a more positive side of the cityâ€™s much-maligned public houses or â€śprojects", as they are called colloquially. Then we feature a Brazilian artist whose work emphasizes the preservation of buildings of historical import.
