NY: The Highline
With the new gorgeous & innovative Highline now completed in NY, and its close proximity to many apartment balconies, it seemed only a matter of time before some creative person seized this unique opportunity. This has happened with a neighbor conceptualizing a "Renegade Cabaret", enlisting her jazz singer friend to help transform her fire escape from a laundry dryer into a bona fide stage, saying “This is in response to 31 years of obscurity. Now, every day there are thousands of people looking in my window. We’re not here to celebrate, we’re here to exploit. Welcome to the Renegade Cabaret.” Only in NY!
