"I think being in the presence of a masterpiece on the level of WWS or witnessing the work of geniuses at the top of their form can be an uplifting experience, regardless of the subject matter or tone of the piece itself."

Of course, but that's not at all the same as saying that WEST SIDE STORY is "The anthem of New York City," which implies that it celebrates New York City. The show is more accurately described as a tragedy about the dark side of New York City -- specifically, the gang warfare that existed in the city 60 years ago, and which still exists, if in a different form.
