I liked your point of view, very deep. And it's the same point of view I have from here. I mentioned Martinelli to express exactly what you said about neglect. Martinelli was a landmark at that time and is part of the Brazilian 'history', and the building is in the center of the city of S茫o Paulo, the center of any city is the landmark - the place where the story begins. And 'decay' when I quote in the article means 'forgetting'. Martinelli and the 'center of the city' have their historical value but the negligent ignorance arising from the lack of education and political neglect makes them forgotten. When I mention 'rebirth', it is the continuous effort of a few parties, to keep it alive so that it does not succumb again to degradation.

It must be about 10 years ago when I went to S茫o Paulo with my brother to meet his business partners there. My memories of the place was that I liked the city as concrete jungle (and since I was born in London - the concrete jungle is my natural home). I could see some of the architecture from the past that you rightly say hold great character, but what saddened me was the graffiti - and I could see at this particular time, whatever public policy was being executed was surely alienating certain members of the youth. This I know because this was not graffiti that one see's in any urban center but graffiti painted at the top side of a building. These kids went up 15 or 20 floors to spray their identity that was visible from the square we were walking through. The main square itself should have been a showpiece place but then I noticed prostitutes lurking in the park area. This of course was only a first impression, but it was reinforced when my brother wanted me to accompany him to De Marco street to buy the usual tourist stuff, and our hosts told us not to go alone and that we were taking a risk going there by ourselves. Yet it was no problem, other than I got separated from my brother and for a moment I realized I had no money, no ID and did not speak Portuguese, but then thankfully with so many people shopping there, I saw him - and ultimately I loved being in S茫o Paulo, but i saw small signs of neglect from government officials - or at least the things that caught my eye told me that there must be some problem with public policies.
