The 339 Lafayette Building, sometimes referred to as the Peace Pentagon, is in limbo, as the board of directors wrestles with structural problems and rising construction costs. This video was made over a year ago at an exhibition at the Mulberry Street Library of architectural designs submitted to a Peace Pentagon competition. One of those interviewed is Bob Nichols, Grace's partner, who died last year. He and Grace were often seen in the Lafayette Street Building, where Grace was on the board of the War Resisters League.
