Wow, check out these studio apartments on top of Carnegie Hall. I didn’t even know there were residential units in that building. Apparently when the concert venue was constructed the plans included 170 studios to house working artists from photographers to composers. Now however that number has dwindled down to 33, and the few remaining are fighting to not be evicted. You can read the full story about their plight HERE.
