Marilyn Monroe New York

New York

During her starlet years, Marilyn studied at the Actors Lab in Los Angeles, an outpost of East Coast theatrical folk in the heart of film industry territory. At the time she thought of New York as "a far, far away place...where actors and directors did very different things than stand around all day arguing about a close-up or a camera angle....It seemed so exciting to me, and I wanted to be part of that life."

In 1954 she decided to make it happen. In the Big Apple she holed up with business partner Milton Greene to plan her life as an independent producer, she began working with Lee Strasberg, she re-negoitated her contract with Fox, she plunged into the world of psychoanalysis, and she fell in love with Arthur Miller. Love prompted her to eulogize about Brooklyn, where Miller was living at the time: "I'm going to buy a little house in Brooklyn and live there. I'll go to the coast only when I have to make a picture."

Marilyn had a number of homes in New York City from 1955 until her death. For most of that time, she had an apartment on East Fifty-Seventh Street. Her last visit to New York was in May 1962, when she sang "Happy Birthday" to President Kennedy at Madison Square Garden.

Marilyn and JFK ?

This Sunday marks the anniversary of the Aug. 5, 1962, death of Marilyn Monroe, after a barbiturate overdose in her home in the exclusive Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Her sudden death at just 36 years old shocked the nation — in part because just three months prior she had given one of her most famous performances. Decked out in a skin-tight, nude-colored dress, she sang “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy, who was turning 45 later that month, at a rally at Madison Square Garden on May 19, 1962
