Innovation Conversation: New York's Neighbors

For our latest Innovation Trail TV special we're looking beyond New York's borders.

We'll start in Pennsylvania, where the natural gas industry is in full swing. As regulators struggle to decide whether to allow hydrofracking in New York, we'll take a look at how the industry is affecting our neighbor to the south.

Next, we'll head to Canada, where the two sides of Niagara Falls are a study in contrasts. The Canadians are way ahead of New York when it comes to cashing in on tourism. Can the American side capitalize on the recent surge of publicity surrounding Nik Wallenda's wirewalk?

Here's a preview:
