Project Description

This is an abandoned field located in one of the poorest parts of Vedado, at the corner of Calzada and J. Locals call it El Hueco (the gap). Come here on a weekend or evening and this area will be filled with people. Amateur baseball and soccer games take place on the field and basket ball is played on this court. Spectators watch from the sidelines. Vendors come around selling snacks, and a little state store, operating out of a shipping container, makes sure everybody has enough to drink. It costs absolutely nothing to watch games here, and it’s a great way to spend an evening.
