More people unclear on the concept - the Carnegie Hall management

| No Comments
Another perfect example of clueless management -- from The Online Photographer:
'Duchess of Carnegie' Faces Cruel Eviction
Carnegie Hall is seeking to evict photographer Editta Sherman, who has lived in her photography studio above Carnegie Hall for the past 60 years and photographed hundreds of show-biz luminaries over the years. Here she is with her 100+-year-old camera and her portrait of actor Anthony Quinn (photo by Colleen M. Delaney).

One good reason for letting her stay? She's 97 years old. The people who run Carnegie Hall must be pretty hard-hearted to not let her live out her life in her longtime home. Let her stay, we say!
There is more over at National Public Radio:
'Duchess' Demands $10M To Leave Carnegie Hall
Photographer Editta Sherman has lived above Carnegie Hall for more than 60 years. In her home studio, she has photographed some of the most famous names in show business, including Elvis Presley, Cary Grant and Marlon Brando.

Now, Carnegie Hall is asking her to leave. But the self-proclaimed "Duchess of Carnegie Hall" tells Alex Chadwick that she is not leaving her rent-controlled studio without a fight.

"I don't think they can put me out; I'm 97 years old coming up. I only have three years to be 100, and I am still skipping rope and running around; I have no wrinkles on my face," she says. "I'm not going to leave. I don't think it's right that they do this, because I need my skylight."

She says she would not be happy living anywhere else and has agreed to leave only if Carnegie Hall agrees to pay her $10 million. Though this seems like an extravagant number, Sherman insists it is only fair if she has to leave her historical studio.
She sounds like an amazing woman. I hope the idiots managing Carnegie Hall come to their senses stat. Talk about a poor decision.
