There goes the neighborhood...



This just happened yesterday. The section of Colima street around my house is the florist district; there are easily 15 flower shops in a two block stretch. But as Roma Norte gets trendier, the older businesses are moving out. Establishments like the Son de Cuba dancehall, which seem to date to an earlier era, slowly become decaying husks while hipper--and more transient--bars take root.
