A man (C) stands next to the covered escalators at Comuna 13 neighbourhood, one of the poorest and most violent areas of the northeastern Colombian city of Medellin, Antioquia department, Colombia on March 1, 2013. Medellin, which competed with New York and Tel Aviv, was chosen by popular vote through the internet, as the �Innovative City of the Year� during the City of the Year contest, organized by The Wall Street Journal and Citigroup. The distinction was basically made for its modern transportation system, its public library, escalators built in a shantytown and schools that have allowed the integration of society.
