Pulling her own strings

This is Doris Diether, long time Village activist, who has been energetically battling unruly developers and unscrupulous landlords throughout the city over many years. She started her activism in 1959 battling "master builder" Robert Moses. Ricky Syers, a beloved puppeteer who is often seen in Washington Square Park, made the puppet of her, and looks on in the background.
