219. New York World's Fair. The Brazilian Pavilion


Dear Lucia,

The Brazilian pavilion was one of the outstanding features
of the 1939 World's Fair. It was so, that the mayor of NY,
Fiorello La Guardia conferred the accolade of honorary
citizen of New York City on architect Niemeyer, a
declared communist.

Best.
