Moderators, I put this thread over here instead of transport because this thread deals more with the buildings facing alleys then the alleys themselves.

Pasaje Rivarola - Buenos Aires







Those who venture into the history and secrets of Buenos Aires shall get to know the Pasajes Porteños (the passageways), whom are hidden in most of the neighborhoods of the city. Among the list of passageways is the Pasaje Rivarola, known for having exact mirrored buildings on each side of the street: the shops, the balconies, the windows, the details on the facades, and even the 4 domes of the corners. The triad of architects who built this beauty were Petersen, Thiele and Cruz.

Carrer del Bisbe, Barcelona. One of the busiest allies in the Gothic Quarter, connecting the Cathedral Square and Sant Jaume Square.

Buenos Aires: Pasaje Lanín




Once known as the “Pasaje Silva”, the Pasaje Lanín was one of the first experiments of the city’s government who aimed to revitalize the south neighborhoods of the Buenos Aires after decades of decay, especially since the construction of the elevated highway (the 25 de Mayo Highway). Just in front of the Roca Line in the neighborhood of Barracas, two complete streets were painted with colorful psychedelic designs with the Barracas Central factory as the door of the passageway in its triangular block.

Passageways & Alleys of Buenos Aires



Unlike other urban systems of the world, Buenos Aires has a very simple layout of the blocks and streets, based on the old spanish urban layout for the colonies. From this point of view, it's interesting to take a look at the many exceptions to the rule in the city, who gave birth to many alleys and passageways when the old rail line were turned into new streets. On the other side, there was a large number of big terrains who were cut into two blocks, with the construction of new streets or alleys in the middle. That is the case of the Pasaje Rivarola, whose buildings are exactly the same in both sides of the street:














A very-well known passageway in the city is the Pasaje Discépolo, a weird "S"-Shaped street who was originally part of the rail tracks of the Western Railroad:















At the neighborhood of Retiro is one of the most new-yorker alley of Buenos Aires: the Pasaje Corina Kavanagh, surrounded by the huge Kavanag Building of Art Deco style












Near the Kavanagh is also the Pasaje Tres Sargentos, known for the old brick buildings, once used for the distribution of the electric power. On the background, several courtain walls of the new skyscrapers of the Catalinas Norte area can be seen:

A bit far from the Downtown , there are also many examples of hidden alleys, such as the Luis Dellepiane and the Anasagasti, in front of the Alto Palermo Shopping Mall:

















As usual in the old alleys throughout the whole world, these places were the perfect scenario for thieves and the lowest people of the society. In Buenos Aires, an extra character took place in these alleys, known as "Guapos Porteños", some kind of lone-rangers who dressed almost as mobs. Very representative on this matter was the Pasaje Carlos Gardel, named after the famous tango singer Carlos Gardel, who lived just one block away, in front of the Abasto Market (nowaday a Shopping Mall):











So these tiny streets also proliferated outside of the Downtown. These are two of them: the Pasaje King and the Pasaje Butteler




















Lastly, two of the most famous pedestrian passageways of Buenos Aires: the Pasaje Colombo at the Balvanera neighborhood and the Pasaje General Paz at the Colegiales neighborhood:
