ABOUT LA MARGINAL
The name “La Marginal” has its roots on a short frontage road off Avenue Baldorioty de Castro in the Miramar sector of San Juan, Puerto Rico. With a spectacular view of the Condado Lagoon and its luminescent reflections of bright lights framing the upscale hotel and residential Condado area across the water, this tiny strip of road emerged as the weekend hangout spot “par excellence” for college students and other adolescents from the early 1960 to the mid 1970’s. First simply a relaxing gathering place to spend time with your “panas” (friends) or “jeva” (girlfriend), walking or in your car, it was soon transformed into a full blown party place, attracting food trucks and stands to offer fried foods, sandwiches, ice cream and beverages. Music and singing filled the air. Guitars, boom boxes, clanging empty cans and sticks, all contributed to the ensuing sonatas to which some ion the crowd would dance; a contrasting image to nightclub activities across the lagoon. Today, the strip has been converted into a picturesque pedestrian and bicycle riding track.
