High Line Renegade Cabaret!

Like any respectable New York City park, the High Line has attracted its fair share of recurring characters (anyone have any video of Boba Fett playing video game songs on his accordion?), but none have been quite as popular as the "Renegade Cabaret" that has emerged from an apartment building adjacent to the Line at 20th Street. Patty (the emcee) and Elizabeth (the singer) have begun "exploiting the captive audience" on the High Line, treating the late night guests at the northern end of section 1 to some good old fashioned sing-song.

More images and video after the break.
