Caballito is located in the exact geographical center of the City of Buenos Aires, as stated on a sign on Avellaneda street, 1023, which names it "The Geometrical Center of the City of Buenos Aires".
In 1921 when the Italian Nicolás Vila became owner of the block of land that would today be located between Av. Rivadavia, Emilio Mitre, Av. Juan B. Alberdi, and Víctor Martínez, he opened a "pulpería" (the name formerly used for a "bar"). At the entrance of the bar he put a wind vane with in the shape of a horse, and the bar started to be known as the "pulpería del caballito" (the bar of the little horse). This is also where the neighborhoods got its name; Caballito. This little horse can now be seen at the Historical Museum of Luján, and there is a replica that you can visit in the Plaza Primera Junta. On the famous corner of the original bar there is also a sign that honors its memory.
The arrival of the street car contributed to the demographic and commercial growth of the area, like in many other "barrios" of Buenos Aires. Along with a large number of immigrants, who later came to build the subway, the area was transformed and divided into two parts; one elegant, expensive and quiet, and the other louder, and more commercial.
The 15th of February is the day of Caballito.
