The American dream says that with hard work and perseverance, anyone can pull himself up from poverty to achieve success. But is this really true? Park Avenue in Manhattan is home to some of the wealthiest people in the country, but just ten minutes away there's another Park Avenue in the South Bronx, where residents subsist on food stamps and face dire futures. Income inequality has skyrocketed in the last three decades, and the question now is if the American dream only applies to the people with enough money to buy it.
