I reverted some additions of Wikipedia links per Wikitravel:links to Wikipedia. They were added back in. Is there a reason to believe that these links belong here despite the guideline? If not, I'll remove them again. --Evan 21:51, 1 January 2007 (EST)
Tepito Eje 1 Norte. Working hours Monday thru Sunday 9AM to 4PM. Established even before the Spanish arrived to Mexico, this is a poor worker's neighborhood with a huge street market considered one of the largest in the world. It's a bad idea going there, this is Mexico City's black market where you can buy anything on your mind from counterfeit sneakers, pirate DVD movies and smuggled electronics to narcotics and weapons. On the literate side of things there's a huge second-hand book market with no less than 150 stalls, some with second-hand soft cover novels in english. The safest way to reach Tepito is by Metro. Line B (dark green) Tepito or Lagunilla Stations will take you straight to the heart of Tepito, but again: it's not a safe place to consider visiting, is too dangerous.
It sounds like we should not encourage people to travel to such a dangerous place. --MarinaK 21:30, 17 September 2008 (EDT)MarinaK.
I second the deletion, though a travel warning wouldn't hurt. It is a very dangerous area.
