IPTC INFO
CaptionLittle Brazil sits in the heart of midtown Manhattan in New York City. Usually its boundary is taken to be the West 46th Street block between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. ___________________ "Nowadays mostly Americans and homesick Brazilian tourists make up the core of our clientele these days." The magic and heartbeat of the street somehow still remains but the solid presence we once had on W 46th Street is definitely gone. " _____________________ "Brazilians in New York also lacked a physical community a distinctly Brazilian neighborhood or shopping district with which they can identify. Even the single block of Little Brazil in Manhattan is not entirely their own --- there are Japanese Argentine Korean and Italian restaurants along it as well as businesses of no distinct nationality. And in Astoria Queens the primary Brazilian residential area in the city almost no outward signs of Brazilians' presence exist. A few scattered stores selling Brazilian products a bar and a handful of their Brazilian-owned businesses are overwhelmed by the strong Greek flavor of the neighborhood." from Maxine L.
