São Paulo 2008

Just to remind a little how the city has grown and changed since 1943 (see previous post).

Avenida São João received a kilometers long viaduct, which in turn was liberated for pedestrians on Sundays and Holidays.
Most houses in the central area were torn down and made place for high-rise with needle-like proportions, due to modern occupation and zoning laws.
A sea of houses in the periphery now extends to the geographical limits, the Serra do Mar and Serra da Cantareira.
