The metropolitan experience refers to the many circumstances of eve-ryday life in the metropolis and the various possible relationships be-tween subjects and urban places, the variety of uses and meanings of space by different people (Duhau and Giglia, 2008).Following this we won’t say that the urban experience is not homogeneous nor neutral but changes depending on which city from different subjects establish a relationship with the rest of the metropolis and sense of their position in it. This article is based on the analysis in a doctoral thesis focused on the experiences of homeless people in the streets of Buenos Aires City. The inhabitants of the street are single people, families, youth, etc. who should inhabit the streets of the city, making that this and their space have another meaning. From this study is that it reflected the reflections presented below on the ways of “being” a city dweller. In this paper we delve into the urban experience across these sectors and will present the latest urban and social transformations that led to that inhabit the streets is a way of “being” a city inhabitant.
