    How do you get out of Carnegie Hall?

    Forget practice -- and ask for $10 million.

    That's what a 96-year-old photographer wants to move out of her rent-controlled apartment above the famed hall where she's lived since 1949.

    Editta Sherman pays $530 a month for the 800-square-foot studio where she raised her five children. There, she photographed famous musicians, actors and entertainers.

    Sherman told the New York Post that Carnegie will have to pay and find her a small place. She's the only one left on her floor -- one of six tenants still living in two towers above the hall.

    Carnegie Hall won a lawsuit that forced more than 30 tenants to leave by last March -- to make way for a $150 million overhaul of the towers into arts education space.
