Its been more than 20 years, 2/3 part of my life, Monday to Monday passing in this neighborhood which I know as much as the palms of my hand. Hundreds of bars and restaurants (La Posada de 1820, hostel downstairs, La Casona del Nonno, El Gaucho Grill and Almacén Suipacha are four examples of those who can speak very well), cinemas and theatres (Ópera, Gran Rex, Nacional, Maipo and Tabarís, sold about 8000 tickets on Saturday night), the Luna Park Stadium, Puerto Madero and Florida St., always crowded. You don´t believe me? Look at these pictures, I´m going to divide them in 3 parts so you can understand the dynamic of the street, considering that the pictures were taken in a Saturday afternoon.
Florida St. - Part 1. From Rivadavia Ave. until Corrientes Ave., Financial District, so it should have almost no activity.
Florida St. - Part 2. From Corrientes Ave., the crossing with Lavalle St. until Cordoba Ave. (Galerias Pacifico Shopping Mall) - Concentration of local sellers and people.
Florida St. - Part 3. Between Cordoba Ave. and M.T.Alvear St. , the most chic and classic postal of Buenos Aires.
Now you know people, if somebody tells you that Buenos Aires, the Downtown, Florida St. some times get empty, this person is simply lying or missing information. Or a bit of both, don´t you think?
