A Richer World, divided cities: New York

The BBC's new season A Richer World launches on Wednesday with multimedia stories from across different continents showing the way this richer world is developing and reflecting on some of the tensions inequality creates.

In a series of reports from different cities we will show how divided some places are, between extreme wealth and poverty. This is New York, presented by the BBC's Nick Bryant.
