In the vicinity of the splendid Plaza Río de Janeiro centered by this statue of David, “cast in bronze, not much more is known about it. It was placed here in 1976, presumably by the park architect, Juan Alvarez Ordoñez. The project was lead by the Mexico City government to reshape the neighborhood.”
We spent a couple hours with a street artist who took us around Roma Norte pointing out pieces and telling us about the artists, the interests of the street artists of Mexico City, and some of the themes to watch for. We enjoyed it very much
Cynthia will remember about these two above because it was interesting…
There are a few square blocks in the middle of Roma Norte nicknamed La Romita. It’s the original square in the area.
