Ratner’s glossy fantasyland
Brooklyn Papers dissects the Liar Flier including this juicy bit about the model pictured:
Page 8: That smiling woman isn’t smiling anymore. Actress T. Sahara Meer (pictured above), the woman in the picture, told The Brooklyn Angle that she posed for the photo because she was “between gigs” — only to find out that the photographer sold the photo to Ratner. “That innocent day in the park [is] one of the most nightmarish experiences of my life: I have become Bruce Ratner’s poster girl,” said Meer, who has a “Stop Eminent Domain Abuse” sign in the window of her Prospect Heights home. “My only hope for redemption is to fight harder. So, thanks, Bruce, for fueling my fire, my anger, my ire, my hatred of you.”
