"Park Avenue: Money, Power & The American Dream" on Independent Lens

Nov 2, 2012

If income inequality were a sport, the residents of 740 Park Avenue in Manhattan would all be medalists. This address boasts the highest number of billionaires in the United States, many of whom actively lobby and finance political campaigns to lower taxes on the wealthy. Less than four miles away, Park Avenue runs through New York’s 16th Congressional District in the South Bronx, which has the highest poverty rate in the U.S. Minutes away from one another as the crow flies, these New Yorkers face dramatically different economic realities. Directed by Alex Gibney.

"Park Avenue: Money, Power & the American Dream" on Independent Lens airs Monday, November 12th at 9:00 pm.
