Come to the HFHA Screening of “LOST BOHEMIA” on December 5th
Hoboken Fair Housing Association is pleased to announce a screening of the film documentary LOST BOHEMIA. This amazing film chronicles the systematic eviction of the artist-tenants who lived for several decades in the Carnegie Hall Artist Studios, on Carnegie Hall’s top floors.
The film is a sad but spirited elegy for the studios, which for more than a century provided working, living and teaching space for all kinds of artists on the floors above Carnegie Hall. These spaces were designed by Andrew Carnegie specifically as artist homes and studios. Today, sadly, all of the Carnegie Hall Studios residents have been replaced with offices.
Director Josef Astor will be on hand to give an introductory presentation at 7:00 p.m. and to answer questions after the film.
THE PLACE: Community Church, 606 Garden Street, on the corner of 6th and Garden Streets in Hoboken.
THE DATE: Friday, December 5th, at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30.
