The Duchess of Carnegie

Have you heard about this sprightly 96 year old, Editta Sherman, who lives in an apartment above Carnegie Hall, and who is currently facing eviction?

The portrait photographer lives in a space filled with old photos of her subjects, who included Salvador Dali and Marlene Dietrich.


Isn't she fabulous? Check out Montague for more photographs and a link to the CNN story about her ongoing tenancy battle.
