Storyline

For over a century, Carnegie Hall rented affordable studio apartments atop the famous music hall to artistic tenants such as Marlon Brando, Paddy Chayefsky and Isadora Duncan. As a privileged tenant, director Josef Birdman Astor began to videotape his neighbors whose lives intersected with decades of artistic history, but his project changed when the landlord served everyone with eviction notices for a conversion to offices. Astor chronicles the protracted battle to save the apartments and pays homage to their rich heritage. Written by Anonymous

If you have a soul watch this doc...sublime.
20 October 2013 | by (Niagara Falls, Canada) – See all my reviews

About an hour of your life you will gladly trade. This Documentary takes you behind the doors of one of New York's and the worlds last bastions of free thinkers and treasured artists, it shows the value of people and the despicable nature of commerce. The denizens of Carnegie Hall will reach in and take your heart as you watch them get legally eviscerated by the very institution that claims to support the arts. If by the end of this film you're not pumping with rage at the loss of culture and precious irreplaceable talent then it's your loss. The people, architecture and artistic works swept under the rug for sterile office space is a crime beyond my deepest contempt. If you wonder if money is destroying the best of man the answer is a resounding yes. When you see the dumpsters parked outside the apartments of the aged tenants (some dealing with cancer)you will feel sick to be human. A film that is poignant and angering and ultimately shows the devaluation of priceless history when it impedes the lining of wealthy pockets.
