Shady Paseo de la Reforma Flows into Chapultepec Park's Dense, Primeval Woodland Crowned by Chapultepec Castle, barely visible through the trees, the park holds Montezuma's rock-hewn bath and a grove of giant cypresses known to him. Fashionable Chapultepec Heights (upper right) reflects the city's rapid growth; not many years ago it was an arid wasteland (page 792). Traffic in the lower right wheels around Independence Monument. This shaft rises from one of the Paseo's wide glorietas, or circles. Mexico's social security program is carried out in the tall, handsome building in the middle left (page 799).
