As Guadalupe street is about to go under reconstruction, our Americorps VISTA Summer Associates and Community Learning Network Youth Ambassadors were out shooting photographs of the street prior to its "Road Diet," capturing shots of Guadalupe and providing a record of the street prior to its Road Diet. These photographs are important evidence for why this Road Diet is badly needed. The photographs show program pavements, narrow sidewalks and poor driveways. All reason why Santa Fe needs this Road Diet. Walking from Santuario de Guadalupe north along Guadalupe street to the intersection with Paseo de Peralta north, our Summer Associates documented and videoed every aspect of Guadalupe street. From historic landmarks, such as the church of Santuario de Guadalupe, to some of Santa Fe's favourite businesses, including Lotaburger and Bumble Bee's, the photographs capture the heart and vibrancy of Guadalupe street.
