Photographer “Duchess of Carnegie” refuses to leave home – CNN.com

(CNN) — Editta Sherman has celebrated more than half a century’s worth of new years in her palatial studio apartment above New York’s Carnegie Hall. But it’s unlikely the celebrated portrait photographer will be raising her glass there next year.

Known as the Duchess of Carnegie, the 96-year-old came home a few days ago to find an eviction notice on her door.

“I thought, oh, what is this? Are you kidding me that they are really going to send a woman like me down the street just like that? Have me scurry away without a fight,” she said, delivering a whooping cackle, punctuated with a grandmother’s tsk tsk.

“Oh, no, that’s not what I am going to do. They’ll have to take me out of here with their bare hands.”
