Walking along Villa Crespo's Avenida Corrientes, you're bound to feel more like an original Porteño than a travelling outsider. This west Buenos Aires neighbourhood's high-rises and industrial spaces foster a livability unlike many other big-city communities. Cafes are unpretentious, commerce is colloquial, and diverse groups of people congregate along Villa Crespo's Subte platforms—a thriving Jewish community calls the neighbourhood home.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
