Green in the City

Today's weather is a perfect barometer! Experience a lush life on grounds designed to bring Mother Nature right to your door. From the Terrace Lounge, where you can unwind with friends in a perfect “backyard,” to a private Zen garden to still the mind and refresh the spirit and a manicured Bocce Ball court, Museum Tower residents have every luxurious advantage at this picturesque urban green space.

“Giant” Presence in Award Season

Wyly Theatre

The DTC will be well represented at the 58th Annual Drama Desk Awards to be held May 19th in New York. Its original production “Giant” just garnered the lion’s share of nominations, nine total, including “Outstanding Musical,” and nods to Kate Baldwin for “Outstanding Actress in a Musical” and Brian d’Arcy James, for “Outstanding Actor in a Musical.”
The play, based on the iconic novel by Edna Ferber, debuted in January 2012 at the Wyly Theatre then made its way to The Public Theater in New York where it drew critical acclaim.
