Blame Washington's intelligence failure, not lack of police
Topic - Elizabeth Sargent
All of her neighbors are gone, forced out. Now Elizabeth Sargent, the last holdout tenant of Carnegie Hall's towers, is preparing to leave the affordable studios that for more than a century housed some of America's most brilliant creative artists.
Red scaffolding surrounds Carnegie Hall as the city-owned towers are being gutted this summer in a $200 million renovation that includes adding a youth music program.
Ms. Sargent, a one-time dancer noted for her boldly sexual poetry, is now in her 80s and has cancer in remission.
"I'd rather live in these run-down rooms than any new apartment in a glass tower," said the reclusive Ms. Sargent, speaking to a reporter by telephone from behind her studio door.
