The closure of the railroad shops in 1970 eliminated 1,500 jobs from the community. Adding insult to injury, the city disconnected the main route into Barelas to create Civic Plaza in 1974 (and reconnected it in 2014). Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Barelas fostered a mean reputation as a crime-ridden barrio. Now with the National Hispanic Cultural Center well established and renovations of the Rail Yards moving full steam ahead, Barelas is making a phenomenal comeback.
