Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl

'''Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl''' ( ), or more commonly '''Ciudad Neza,''' is a city and ''municipality (municipalities of Mexico)'' of Mexico State adjacent to the northeast corner of Mexico's Federal District (Mexican Federal District): it is thus part of the Mexico City Metropolitan Area (Mexico City). It was named after Nezahualcoyotl, the Acolhua poet and king of nearby Texcoco (Texcoco (Aztec site)), and was built on the drained bed of Lake Texcoco. The name ''Nezahualcóyotl'' comes from Nahuatl, meaning "fasting coyote." title Enciclopedia de los Municipios de México Estado de Mexico Nezahualcóyotl publisher INAFED location Mexico language Spanish accessdate January 18, 2010

Until the 20th century, the land on which Ciudad Neza sits was under Lake Texcoco and uninhabited. Successful draining of the lake in the early 20th century created new land, which the government eventually sold into private hands. However, public services such as adequate potable water, electricity and sewerage were lacking until after the area was made an independent municipality in 1963. Today Ciudad Neza is a sprawling city of over one million entirely with modern buildings.

As of 2006, Nezahualcóyotl included part of the world's largest mega-slum, along with Chalco (Valle de Chalco) and Izta (Ixtapaluca). Mike Davis (:en:Mike Davis (scholar)), ''Planet of Slums'', La Découverte, Paris, 2006 (ISBN 978-2-7071-4915-2), p. 31. Most of its population is poor Since the 2000s, a significant number of natives of this city have immigrated to the United States, mostly settling in New York. This has led to a new Mexican subculture in the area.

The city and municipality is named after the Aztec King Nezahualcóyotl. The entity has an Aztec glyph as well as a coat of arms. The glyph depicts the head of a coyote, tongue outside the mouth with a collar or necklace as a symbol of royalty. It was one of the ways of depicting the Aztec king. The current coat of arms, which includes the glyph, was authorized by the municipality in the 1990s. The municipality comprises its own intrastate region, Region IX (Mexico State).
