At a Glance

Marked for demolition as a slum that 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 preforming arts center and a new high-rise neighborhood. The real story includes ethnic and racial tensions, urban renewal, the Cold War, and architectural and political rivalries that played out as the consensus of the 1950s gave way to the tumult of the 1960s. Let’s explore the dramatic story that brought Lincoln Center into being in the middle of the 20th Century, and watch as it is reimagined for the 21st Century.

If you are interested in the arts, architecture and politics of New York in the mid-60s, you will love this lecture. The presenter is very knowledgeable and has lots of little "in" stories to share.
