THE POST-OFFICE : MEXICO CITY Photo from Alberto L.Godoy "Mexico City is the most complete mixture of the ancient and the modern to be found in the New World. The oldcity might date anywhere from the tenth century, from its appearance. The new city is ultra modern, and you step from thesixteenth tothetwentieth century bywalking across the street. In the new part of the city there are miles of streets, with magnificent homes onboth sides, that remind one ofMassachusetts avenue between Dupont Circle and Sheridan Circle in Washington or of Riverside Drive in New York" (see text, page 489).
