It should be remembered that the Municipality approved on February 26, 2021, to name “Armando Manzanero” a section of 60th street, exactly the one that goes from 121 to 95. 

The artist himself chose the aforementioned street to bear his name, because it is linked to his roots and his childhood in this city.
