According to reports, Freedman became interested in photography as a child when copies of LIFE document the Holocaust, and later decided to tell stories through the camera in such a way those images have moved her.

Roseland was considered as among the best NYC nightlife spots, having a real ballroom that features two bands where people get to meet other people, have some laughs and drinks. In fact, reports suggest that its ballroom seemed like  a United Nations of dancing fools of different ages.

NYC nightlife in the Ballroom of Romance, meantime, is reported to be a disco now, which used to be the Penn Station or the Old Met, where people may listen to the Broadway lullaby, but will not actually hear it. This lullaby, according to reports, comes from the tunes of an old song that Freedman grew to love and adored in her youth, Vice reported.

Meanwhile, a new nightlife trend begins at the  13th Annual Bar and Restaurant Show, hitting the Jacob K. Javits Center in NYC on June 26 and 27.
