    • Synopsis
    • For over a century Carnegie Hall rented work-live studio spaces atop the famous music hall to artistic tenants such as Marlon Brando, Paddy Chayefsky, and Isadora Duncan. As a tenant with unlimited access into this little known world, the director began to videotape the lives of his neighbors whose lives intersected with decades of artistic history. But the project took an abrupt turn when The Carnegie Hall Corporation terminated all leases, and instigated a plan to eliminate the 115 year old artists colony put in place by Andrew Carnegie. The film follows the protracted battle by the tenants to preserve their community and the rich heritage of the studios.
