Yeah, it has caught my attention, too! It is amazing how many breathtakingly beautiful boulevards there are around the world, and only increases my desire to see Buenos Aires!

World wide, I'd pick the Champs Elysees, la avenida 9 de Julio, Buenos Aires 2nd.
Agreed.....1. Champs Elysees (Paris) 2. Ave 9 de Julio (Buenos Aires) I have been to both cities many times, and you can only appreciate the beauty of these places by being there in person and actually walk those avenues/Blvds....nothing else compares....Paseo de la Reforma in Mexico City is nice too...by the "Angel" statute.....I have been there too.

They might be almost of one architectural style, however, that doesn't mean they are strictly similar to each other, like your posting suggests - so no, their are not similar.

Miami, the thread is about avenues, not about cities, you hadn´t post one Av. in that post, you´ve put diferents aves there and you didn´t put the name of the avenues neither...
You´ve post Rivadavia Av, Avenida de Mayo and 9 de Julio there....

Defintely, 9 de julio is not beautiful. In any case, is impressive but never beautiful...

There are many, many threads for posting general photos of cities. Please keep our entries focused on avenues. Thanks!

obviously you don't know Champs Elysees.

it's with no doubt the most diverse avenue of Paris in terms of archtecture.

there's art deco, art nouveau, haussmanien, beaux arts, shitty 70s architecture, coutain wall, a couple palaces, bureaus, multifamial buildings, hotels particuliers, even a circus!!!

I agree, there´s a lot of amazings avenues in Buenos Aires with great buildings from the beginning to the end, but 9 de julio is too big from my point of view and a lot of nice buildings are hidden behind adverts... but at the same time I´m sure that your coment is not casual,,, you´re always attacking Buenos Aires in the international threads... And I have some examples of that, you should calm down... And I´m not saying this because of this last comment... If you don´t like the city It´s ok, but stop trolling at every thread wich the city is posted

The point is that the nice buildings of 9 de julio are hidden behind adverts and there´s other much impressives avenues in the city... like:

Avenida Roque Saez Peña/ Diagonal Norte

Avenida Alvear, Avenida de Mayo, Avenida del Libertador and even Avenida Callao or Avenida Figueroa Alcorta are more beautifull than Avenida 9 de Julio.


Avenida 9 de Julio is impressive,but I don´t know if It´s beautiful if you compare it with the other Avenues of the city...

But in the World I have to say that my favourite ones are Champs Elysees and The Fifth Av. of New York.
In Buenos Aires I should say that my favourites are Alvear Avenue, Avenida del Libertador and Av. Roque Saez Peña.

Here's Av 9 de Julio in 1940 compared with the actual one.

as you see, a half of boulevards and squares where destroyed.



9 de Julio is 3,7km
Champs Elysees + Av de la Grande Armee (its continuation after the Arc) is almost the same.
