"Miracle on 42nd Street" is a one-hour documentary about the untold history and impact of the Manhattan Plaza apartment complex in New York City. Starting with the background of the blighted Hell's Kitchen neighborhood and the building's initial commercial failure in the mid-1970s, the story recounts how - in a moment of bold inspiration or maybe desperation - the buildings were "re-purposed" as subsidized housing for people who worked in the performing arts, becoming one of the first intentional, government supported, affordable housing for artist residences.
