  • Description

    New York is a cosmopolitan city and New Yorkers are quite accustomed to the sight on city streets of visitors from foreign lands.

    But the local residents took a second look -- and quite possible even a third and fourth look -- when 90 kimono-clad Japanese girls emerged Thursday (16 April) from a subway station and strolled en masse along Fifth Avenue -- the city's famous shopping street.

    The girls will be hostesses at the Japanese Pavilion at New York's World's Fair, which opens 22 April. And the stroll along Fifth Avenue was designed to call attention to the Pavilion. It was a stunt that worked well. And it gave the girls a chance not only to see Fifth Avenue, but also to visit Rockefeller Centre, which is just off the Avenue.
