Buenos Aires: New York in the sixties?

I read somewhere in a guidebook or website that Buenos Aires reminds them of New York City during the 1960s. While I was not alive during this time period, I think I get the idea. Crowded streets, lots of color, a little dilapidated and street vendors selling antique nicknacks. It does seem like going back in time, a bit. That was the inspiration for these photos. (They were edited to look antique).

Near Puerto Madero.

 Hasta pronto, amigos.
