vecindades are popular tenements in central city districts in mexico, usually old decaying singular-family aristocratic houses, a couple of hundred years old, that then became squats and now are the ultimate form of "popular housing", where dozens of families take up old bedrooms as their flats. vecindades usually have a central indoor patio that opens directly to the street, making them ideal spaces for shady buisness: drugs, smuggling, storage, contacts, prostitution, etc.
