"I find curious the comment about "downtown". Though I can understand what it means and have visited such in several U.S. cities, it is a hard term to translate into Spanish."

At least in "Tex-Mex" or Splanglish it is quite simple. We say "el centro" exclusively for downtown. Me voy al centro. ┬┐Tu vas al centro?.

Cheers,
