Short Introduction to the Area of Study

please give a short summary why you have chosen this area, its main features and context (circa 150 words)

The area we chose to work with, “Juramento Street”, is a great avenue located in the city of Buenos Aires. This street is very popular. There take place different activities at the same time: the street is well known by the facilities that offers for public transport; a train station and an underground station are near this avenue, and many buses travel through it. Near the train station there is a great slope transformed into a park that separates the buildings from the streets and rail ways. Besides, the street crosses the neighborhood of Belgrano, which is very residential, and has a considerable population in the city. The Juramento Street itself and the surrounds are very commercial. It is easy to find any kind of shops, but most of them are clothing and coffee’s stores. Also, very close to Juramento Street is located a Chinese town that attracts the visits of hundreds of people.
