Neighbored by Zona Rosa's nighttime revelers, Colonia Cuauhtémoc's white-collar crowd, and Centro Histórico's religious pilgrims, Roma Norte’s residents ink their neighborhood’s alleyways, ink their buildings’ brick facades, and ink themselves. In this nearly central expressionist enclave, single speeds help artists save on gas and the spare change helps them buy organic. When not skating, spraying, or conceptualizing, Roma Norte’s locals share late night cigarettes left to smolder outside the neighborhood’s bars and art galleries.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
Expressive on the Streets of Roma Norte
The neighborhood itself, Roma, is my favorite part of the city. Great cafes and bars and a great art scene. Go for a walk down Colima or Álvaro Obregón, or up Orizaba and back down Jalapa Street."
