ABOUT The LITTLE FLOWER - Fiorello LaGUARDIA
Actor Tony LoBIANCO (French Connection Film)
5 ft. tall Ball of Energy: Fiorello Henry LaGUARDIA (1882 ~ 1947) was Mayor of New York for three terms from 1934 to 1945 as a Republican. Previously he had been elected to Congress in 1916 and 1918, and again from 1922 through 1930. Irascible, energetic, and charismatic, he craved publicity and is acclaimed as one of the three or four greatest mayors in American history. Only five feet tall, he was called "the Little Flower" (Fiorello in Italian)
1939 NYC’s YANKEE Stadium: Joe DiMaggio, Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia, Lou Gehrig
August 27 1938, HYDE PARK, NYC - Franklin D. ROOSEVELT and Fiorello LAGUARDIA
LaGuardia, a Republican who appealed across party lines, was very popular in New York during the 1930s. As a New Dealer, he supported President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a Democrat, and in turn Roosevelt heavily funded the city and cut off patronage from LaGuardia's foes. Just like Mayor GIULIANI in the 1990's, La Guardia revitalized New York City and restored public faith in City Hall. He unified the transit system, directed the building of low-cost public housing, public playgrounds, and parks, constructed airports, reorganized the police force, defeated the powerful Tammany Hall political machine, and reestablished merit employment in place of patronage jobs.
