14 “Angels in America”–Inspired Sites to Visit in NYC

The Broadway performance of “Angels in America” inspired us to take a look at our city’s part in LGBTQIA+ history.

Kelsey Montague’s Angel Wings

The beloved yet heartbreaking story of Angels in America has come to Broadway’s stage again. Our partnership with the show inspired us to take a look at the New York City spaces and people important to LGBTQIA+ history. Admire Emma Stebbins’s Angel of the Waters sculpture in Bethesda Fountain (which appears at the end of Angels!) or grab a drink at Julius’s, the city’s oldest gay bar. Visit these places before sitting for the two-part production to contextualize the immensely powerful and distressing history tackled in the play.
