520    "New York Mid-Century, 1945-1965 is the story of how the 
       Big Apple emerged as the cultural capital of the postwar 
       world in art, architecture, design, and the performing 
       arts. It was a period of intense cross-fertilization, as 
       poets and critics mixed with artists, dealers, musicians, 
       designers, architects, actors, dancers, and 
       choreographers. Annie Cohen-Solal, a best-selling author 
       whose books include a biography of kingmaker art dealer 
       Leo Castelli, brings alive the artistic ferment of those 
       years: the legendary galleries and watering holes, the 
       landmark exhibitions and happenings, the influential 
       critics and collectors, and the artists themselves, from 
       Abstract Expressionists Pollock, Rothko, de Kooning, and 
       Kline, to Color Field artists Frankenthaler, Noland, and 
       Louis, to Johns and Rauschenberg, to Minimalists Judd and 
       Flavin, to Pop Artists Oldenburg, Lichtenstein, and 
       Warhol. Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Paul 
       Goldberger guides us on a tour of the Modernist 
       masterpieces that gave the city a sleek new profile: 
       Gordon Bunshaft's Lever House, Mies van der Rohe's Seagram
       Building, Le Corbusier and Wallace Harrison's United 
       Nations, Philip Johnson's Four Seasons restaurant and New 
       York State Pavilion at the 1964 World's Fair, Frank Lloyd 
       Wright's Guggenheim Museum, Eero Saarinen's TWA Terminal 
       at Idlewild Airport, and of course, Lincoln Center, New 
       York's answer to the great piazzas of the world. He also 
       takes us into the swank shops, offices, and apartments of 
       the era, the furnishings designed by Modernist icons from 
       Charles and Ray Eames to Florence Knoll and George Nelson,
       and he tantalizes us with the work of the pioneering 
       advertising executives, graphic designers, and 
       photographers who gave the period that Mad Men look. He 
       concludes the section with a lively recounting of the 
       philosophical battle between the urban planners who 
       believed in tearing down and building anew (the Robert 
       Moses camp) and the preservationists who believed in 
       retaining the character of old neighborhoods (the Jane 
       Jacobs camp). And finally, Robert Gottlieb, former editor 
       of The New Yorker and current dance critic of The New York
       Observer, invites us to the theater, both on and off 
       Broadway, to relive the heyday of the musical, from 
       Carousel to The King and I, from My Fair Lady to West Side
       Story, as well as the searing dramas of Williams, Albee, 
       and Miller, and Joseph Papp's wildly innovative 
       Shakespeare in the Park productions; to the great jazz 
       clubs of Harlem and 52nd Street to meet the likes of Miles
       Davis, Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, and Dizzy 
       Gillespie; to the studios and stages of the dance world, 
       where George Balanchine and the New York City Ballet were 
       revolutionizing ballet and Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham,
       José Limón, Paul Taylor, and Alwin Nikolais were wowing  
       audiences with the purely American idiom of modern dance; 
       and to the legendary cabarets and nightclubs, from the 
       Blue Angel and Café Society Downtown to the Latin Quarter 
       and Copacabana, where stars as diverse as Pearl Bailey, 
       Barbra Streisand, Mike Nichols and Elaine May, Harry 
       Belafonte, Carol Burnett, and Woody Allen got their start.
       And when all the art exhibits, plays,  revues, and dance 
       performances come to an end, Mr. Gottlieb treats us to 
       nightcaps at the Stork Club and El Morocco." --
