Mexico City, apart from having five cbd ( something I just learned) has some of the nicest suburbs Ive seen. There are some neighborhoods with grey houses that shouldnt be considered slums because they r made out of cement (not cardboard!) and actually are supplied with electricity and everthing els to make it livable. They just need some color!

Here are some amazing shots:

This is part of a 23,000 house developmesnt in an area called Ixtapaluca.


...and another one...


Heres a unique design for an apartment complex:

...and one more...

Notice that not only is it a unique design but quite a solution to a landscape issue. It doesnt matter how step a cliff face is, its gona get built on! :P

1 more, it shows the engenierring feats that go towards building some of these homes:

Santa Fé is kind of "la Defense" of Latin America. I really like it. Congratulations México.

Amazing pics !

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

Unique designs. The housing developments remind me of Dr. Seus.

Well, does developments are for low-income families and they are very crowded because the city's density is very high.

Maybe it's not as much a matter of closeness as of dependence. When Mexico will stop being a colony of the States as it is today, its unique character will shine. Before that time, everything will be an ugly copy of stuff from the north.

Sorry, but this is also an example of what I mean: what is it, the Truman show? This is as close to a nightmare a landscape as I've ever seen. What diseased mind could have created this neighbourhood? I am sure the people from Mexico could do MUCH better in organizing the living space. Either this is the fruit of an experiment in social control or of very misguided taste and very devious architectural standards. I suspect it's the former.

Colony of the states? Oh I know what you mean! Sort of when italy freed itself from the states with the marshall plan and all, right? Wait. But wouldnt that be like getting adopted by rich parents that spoil you for the next 50 years of your life. Its like cheating yourself up to greatness with free money, right?
So how many military bases does the US have in lts former colony? lol!
Be careful with what you say, it'll get you in trouble.

Dear integrated victim of colonization, you're perfectly right: Italy was a victim of colonization too, and still is, because of the bases and more. In fact, we keep on being americanized and our culture (and economy) suffers from this too.
What matters is being conscious of that.
I hope you'll still be after some years in "Nueva York".
