"Retiro & San Nicolas : Florida street footpath" Calle Florida - Florida Street Tip by ptitetoile


Florida is a long shopping street used daily by thousands of people work in the dowsntown area. Street performers, folk musicians, living statues and tango dancers entertain passersby in front of shops that sell leather goods, clothes, jewelry, electronic equipment, (tango!!!) records and books.

In 1880, it was the residence place of the elite of Buenos Aires that afterward (in 1910) moved to Plaza San Martin and Barrio Norte. In 1913, thanks to a petition signed by the proprietaries of the shops of the area, the street became pedestrian and the most important "confetarias" and shops installed there.
