Dylan Thomas 100: Exploring the poet's 1950s New York

The debut performance of Dylan Thomas's most famous work, Under Milk Wood, took place in New York in 1953.

It received much acclaim, but months later on another trip to the city the Swansea-born poet died at the age of 39.

As events take place around the world to mark the centenary of the poet's birth, BBC reporter Tomos Morgan visits the places in the city where he lived, worked and socialised.
