Copacabana has almost 300 000 people, this neighborhood of Rio is bigger than many europpean cities I know, there are more people here than in Ottawa, for example, anyway, it is a big district full of buildings, and the area were heavily populated in the 50s and the 80s..but when they first come here, art decó was the most present architecture style.

As you can see in the picture....this is the place I use everyday...hehehehe I live here and my building has 60 years old!;)

Very common to find constructions at this age, and the apartments are generally big and confortable!;)

Something you should know, sometimes one apartment of 4 rooms can be cheaper than one room apartment in Manhattan.
