Pretty areas to walk around?

Can anyone recommend a "pretty" area to walk around and explore one afternoon in Mexico City? I am already planning on exploring the more major areas (Roma, Condesa, etc.) but I often see really nice pictures from bloggers or the likes in areas with beautiful homes and doors, flowers, trees... hoping to find a few neighborhoods to take pictures of to frame in my house. Doesn't necessarily have to be an area with shops and restaurants, could just be a quaint neighborhood.

Any ideas appreciated!

Coyoacan has some beautiful architecture. I'd recommend taking the metro to Miguel Angel de Quevedo and then walking east to Calle Salvador Novo, north to Calle Francisco Sosa, and then walking east along that street to the main plaza of Coyoacan. From there you can explore many of the side streets including a visit to the La Conchita Chapel.

On my last visit, I happened upon a neighborhood in or near Condesa, one street of which was Calle Amsterdam. It was a long, oval street, lots of trees and nice looking homes, and short side streets to explore. Very pleasant to stroll, and there were a few nice cafes to stop for a coffee or snack.

Azbuceadora, what you're describing is exactly Condesa.

I've taken many pictures of old doors in Mexico. They are all over my house!
