Jerome Robbins
October 11, 1918 - July 29, 1998
117 East 81st Street, Manhattan
Internationally acclaimed dancer, choreographer, and director Jerome Robbins lived and worked here from 1967 to 1998. Many of the more than 60 ballets he created - including Fancy Free, Afternoon of a Faun, and Dances at a Gathering - remain in the repertories of New York City Ballet and other major dance companies. His ballets and Broadway shows, including On the Town, West Side Story, Peter Pan, Gypsy and Fiddler on the Roof, continue to bring the artistry of dance to millions worldwide through stage, television and motion pictures. The recipient of numerous awards, including two Academy Awards for the film West Side Story, Robbins' gift of royalties to the dance Division of the New York Public Library for Performing Arts, and his establishment of a foundation in 1957, ensured that his legacy fosters the cultural life of New York City and the World.
