Mexico City’s charming and chill Amsterdam neighborhood.

Circling Mexico City’s oval-shaped Parque Mexico is a street named Calle Amsterdam that is lined with some of the city’s most interesting and charming buildings. Officially in the Hipódromo neighborhood between the La Condesa and Roma neighborhoods, Calle Amsterdam has a wide, tree-filled pedestrian median that functions like a track in a stadium, where you’ll see strollers, joggers, and dog-walkers using the street to get their exercise and to unwind from the urban intensity of other parts of the city.

The shady median of Calle Amsterdam doesn´t look like it´s located in the center of the largest metropolitan area in the Western Hemisphere.
