In the 1970s the Manhattan Plaza in New York was a unique social experiment that helped a run-down Manhattan neighbourhood blossom into one of the city’s most attractive districts. The gigantic residential complex offers subsidised housing to creatives active in the dozens of theatres on Broadway. From Angela Lansbury and Samuel L. Jackson to Alicia Keys and Larry David, the careers of countless stars owe much to this remarkable place. Despite turbulent financial times and the AIDS crisis, which claimed more victims around Times Square than anywhere else in the world, the project has continued to this day. Alice Elliott’s Miracle on 42nd Street shows how the affordable housing on Manhattan Plaza, and the artists who reside there, have continued to shape New York’s unique theatre culture.
