    Spike Lee: what will become of NYC?

    Movie writer and director Spike Lee is a proud, life-long New Yorker. But even the man who created thought provoking films about race and city living like 'Do The Right Thing,' isn't so optimistic about the Big Apple's future. "Here's the thing about New York City. It is unaffordable to live here. People can't pay rent. If you can't afford to send your kid to private school, you can't get a good education. If only millionaires can live in NYC than this place is going to stink," said Lee.
