Explore the intimate relationship between creative genius Jerome Robbins and New York City, a place that was always at the center of his work. Though known primarily as a choreographer, dancer and stage director, Robbins also created diaries, watercolors, paintings, drawings and poems that told stories of the City that he loved. Through this exhibition, viewers will see how he portrayed the City in his works, how it inspired him and how it served as his home for over 60 years.
