El Zócalo

Rob,
Is the zocalo the same area as basketball court.

Yes. It is customary to refer to a town's main plaza as its zócalo, however the big kahuna is of course and always will be the Zócalo of Mexico City aka Plaza de la Constitución. The heart and soul of Mexico.

Did you know there was a major event yesterday evening in Mexico City's Zócalo with hundreds of musicians from México and abroad and over a hundred and forty thousand spectators who attended for free? It was to lift spirits, honor rescuers and to help raise money to help victims of Mexico's two recent major earthquakes on the 7th and 19th of September. Over 180,000 are homeless because of the recent telluric activity.

You can see some impressive photos of yesterday's event here: Unen sus voces por México

Here's one of the most excellent performances folks were treated to yesterday. This is Enrique Bunbury from Spain.
