A Few Shots of old Facades along Rivadavia Ave.:

Full block of apartments:

Another Corner with the same theme:



Two Story corner with Italian Styling and Burger King Beyond:



Major Corner Building with steep Dome:



Same building from a different angle:



Another classy corner:



More elegant facades:





Some truly elaborate facade treatments:



After so many years some buildings develop lovely old surface patinas:



I find some balconies kind of poetic:



People placing ugly signs ignoring the uniqueness of the old building:



I do like ornate balconies:



I also like mansards:



It is all in the details:



Superb craftsmanship:



The building in it's entirety... they told me the interiors are equally stunning:



Old facades and tall trees lining the streets:



Old Bank Architecture:



Another old bank:



Corner Treatment:



Nice window treatment:



More poetic facades:



Interesting volumetric arrangement:



Stately quarters:



Very ornamented doors:



Another Domed corner:



And yet another one:



And some more:



Ondulating Art Nuveau Facade:



Detail of the building's entry door:



Domes are nice:



And nicer:



Curvy balconies bring interest to the casual pedestrian like me:



More old facades:

The Outer Suburbs...

How do the outer suburbs look like?... well there is a mix of gated neighborhoods called "Country Clubs" and also quite a few shanty towns...
I was invited to one of them and this is how it looks like:



Modern condos in gated community:



All outdoor patios have bbq grills:



The parking lot... amix of bikes, cars and trailers beyond...




Typical inner residential street of gated community:



Lots of brick masonry used on the houses:



House entrance:



Typical 2 story house:



Another house with ample mansards:



Gables and gables:



Lots of brick:



Clubhouse:



Lot of green surrounding condo complex:



The green pampas beyond:



The 9 hole golf course:



More golf:



Gazebos at golf course:



Houses facing the golf course :



Nice corner residence:



Modern style residence:



Another house with contemporary styling:



More residential architecture:



Massive overhangs:



community swimming pool:



Outdoor ramadas:



Typical streets:





A 6 foot fence away the have-nots neighborhood:



And one final shot of the gated community:

Wow! What a city! Full of variety, contrasts and extremes. I, particularly, liked the images of the La Boca and also of the cemetery - surrounded by big buildings.

In a city of such extremes - I guess that there must be a fair amount of tension?

A great tour, thanks.
