Oct 19th 2012 10:17AM I went to Buenos Aires in 2007. This is the"Paris" of South America but also had a New York flavor since everyone is on the streets- it is very crowded. My sister and I enjoyed walking around in the city central and to the "Beverly Hills" part of the city, La Recoletta. We window shopped, saw architectural wonders, and sampled some of the best wine and steak dinners we ever had. I wanted to add that since the country's economic system failed in 2001, crime has increased dramatically. It is not safe to walk into some areas like La Bocca or even city central at night. We always were on the main streets and never walked in the dark or on smaller streets after several locals said "They will take your money." The taxis are also cheap.
