A block away, meanwhile,...

These roads bisected the old city (the bazaar and its environs) and led outward in a perfect grid fashion. Pictured here is the view from the inside of the National Garden's gated complex, a tranquil scene insulated from the boulevard beyond. The new roads disrupted the...
