San Juan, Puerto Rico

Many cities around Puerto Rico can follow Mayaguez' example, Arecibo comes to mind....
Arecibo became de industrialized when all the rum factories left town, around the late 1960's.
A rusty and decadent belt of old ruins is all that's left from that city's "golden age".
Entire city block after city block have turned the (otherwise, beautiful city's central sq) into an eyesore.
I can't even begin to imagine turning all that area into an urban garden by extending the already existing gardens at the Arecibo's river edge...
A green belt which would be a truly urban park, smacked in the middle of town.
It would be bring back commerce and life to its decaying economy.
