Resurgence: Lincoln Center and the Cormorant

Manhattan’s Lincoln Square has come a long way since a major redevelopment plan began in 1996. One of the many partners helping with Lincoln Square‘s growth has been Fordham University. On This week's Fordham Conversations the President of the Lincoln Square Business Improvement District, Monica Blum talks about the evolution of the area. Then WFUV’s Marisa Galdi looks at the resurgence of the double-crested Cormorant, a bird whose population was almost wiped out.
