A Place for Us: West Side Story and New York

A Place for Us tells the story of an American classic, West Side Story — and the vision of postwar New York at its heart.

Julia Foulkes interweaves the creation of the musical and film with the remaking of the Upper West Side and the larger tale of New York’s postwar aspirations. She shows how Robbins, Bernstein and Laurents were determined to evoke real life in New York — giving West Side Story its unshakable feeling of place and its sense of a new, vigorous, determinedly multicultural American city.
