There are eight million stories in the Naked City — or 8,175,133, to be more precise, according to recently released U.S. Census Bureau figures. NYCity News Service reporters hit the streets to put faces to the numbers in a series of story packages that offer snapshots of who we are, how we live — and where.

NYC events reported live — unfolding before your eyes — and recorded for review.
