Downtown to Old Town: Follow the Brass Professional Review and Guide

"Despite portents of the old-fashioned villa’s imminent demise, the two towns maintained a tenuous connection via a streetcar system and a powerful political district known as the Fourth Ward. So the villa persisted, although not without a struggle, and in 1949 the city annexed Old Town without overwhelming its original character.

This walk examines their remaining differences and the prominent neighborhood that developed to fill the space between them. The route mostly follows Albuquerque’s official “Plaza to Plaza Tour,” a trail marked with brass plaques embedded in the sidewalks. The corresponding brochure is recommended for supplemental coverage of sites along the way. It’s available at visitor information centers located on both plazas."
