Notes on the Geography of Mexico: Mexico City: Photo 1
We're walking toward the Torre Latino-Americana or Latin American Tower, designed by Adolfo Zeevaert and completed in 1956. It famously survived the great 1985 earthquake, but we're here strictly for the view from the top. The street is pedestrianized Calle Francisco Madero, the axis of the tourism corridor.
