You are right I just edited that. It gets a bit ghetto ish at night in some streets ( have you tried going towards Sarmiento and Aguero? Everything between Corrientes and Cordoba is more normal, but Corrientes to the other side... Also some dead en streets ( Pasaje Zelaya ) are known for heavy drug selling ( crack ). Have you visited the block around the Abasto Towers? There are several blocks like that where houses have been taken and they host mini villas inside.crisp eel said:oooh, illegal Peruvian and Bolivian immigrants - I find that offensive.
I walk the streets of Abasto at all hours - it can look kind of rough but I have never felt threatened.
Recoleta is safe, but so is Congreso and it is substantially cheaper. Some some parts of Almagro, Villa Crespo, Belgrano, Caballito. If you need to be close to Callao and Corrientes, Congreso is a good option.JPD said:Alright, thanks for the warnings. Recoleta it is then
