At a Glance

Marked for demolition as a slum which inspired the 1957 play “West Side Story," scenes for the 1961 movie were filmed on this very site just as the district gave way to a glittering performing arts center and a new high rise neighborhood. The real story includes ethnic and racial tensions, Urban Renewal, the Cold War, architectural and political rivalries played out as the consensus of the Fifties gives way to the tumult of the Sixties. Let’s explore this dramatic story that brought this iconic but controversial center into being in the middle of the 20th Century and watch as it is reimagined for the 21st Century.
