The New York state capital, Albany, is a gathering place for the state's most powerful people.
But in the city's poor and predominately black South End neighborhood, many residents once felt powerless.
They had repeatedly asked for better public transit for South End, an area plagued with poverty and crime not far from New York's gated governor's mansion.
Today, the city's Route 100 bus glides easily up Morton Avenue, a steep hill in the South End neighborhood. Many feel there would be no Route 100 if not for the efforts of local resident Willie White.
