A Big N.F.L. Game Comes to Mexico City. These Guys Have it Covered. - The New York Times
Mexico’s proximity to the United States and a developing middle class fluent in American culture, not to mention innumerable cross-border ties, make it a market with unfulfilled potential for American sports leagues.

As Mexico Builds Green Airport of the Future, Age-Old Mistakes Loom - The New York Times
On the flat salt basin that was once the Aztecs’ great Lake Texcoco, Mexico is building its “door to the world,” an enormous airport the government vows will exist in harmony with the environment.

Officials described a terminal design so green that it would be a “global reference” for sustainability, and they pledged to rescue degraded lands surrounding the airport.

But soon after construction started in 2015, the government appeared to turn its back on part of that promise, ceding land designated on project maps for conservation to local officials for development.

Finding Mexico City, and Luis Barragán, Again - The New York Times
I was well aware that in my time away, Mexico City had changed in both good and bad ways. It had become an island of relative safety in a sea of narcoterrorism. It had become a necessary stopping-off point for culinary adventurers. It had evolved into a newly lustrous destination for the internationalized contemporary art elite, drawn by a thriving gallery scene and newly opened museums.
