A few years ago radio producer Dave Isay spent a lot of time hanging out in a couple of flophouses in New York City's bowery district. The result of his time there was an award winning documentary called The Sunshine Hotel. Now photographer Harvey Wang's images of those from the documentary are in a new book called Flophouse and are also on exhibit in a Manhattan gallery. Host Jacki Lyden and Producer Tracy Wahl hooked up with Isay and Wang to search out some of the subjects of that book. They wanted to find out if being part of a documentary and now the subject of a book has had any effect on their lives.
