Lille, France (Part 6)


You know you are in the very northeast of France near Belgium and England when the buildings look like this and when so much brick is used.

London, England (Part 7)


Some French-inspired architecture in these pics of London. Can you find the buildings? The first pic might be hard.

Wow. It's so cool to have pictures of London and pictures of Paris in one thread.

I won't tell which city I like better...

Paris, France (Part 7)


A visit of through Belleville and Canal Saint-Martin neighborhoods. Words that may describe these neighborhoods are multi-ethnic, bohemian, leftist, semi-gentrified, artsy, young. It's a bit like Kreuzberg in Berlin but more subtle, of course.

Lovely shots, I can certainly spot the French style architecture in the London piccies - an interesting mix of building styles there. Great photos from all cities!

What an interesting and original thread!

People always pigeon-hole these cities (well mainly London and Paris), that London is fairly ugly and Paris is beautiful, but these two great cities have more in common than people think. London can look more like Paris than Paris does at times(!) and can be an incredibly beautiful city at times, while Paris is not the perfect, beautiful city that many people seem to think it is and has it's grittier side, a bit like London!

Also, I agree that in many ways, Lille is more similar to London, with it's brick buildings, than it is to Paris. It's a city that I would definitely like to experience in the flesh. In particular, I love the art-deco city hall!

All in all, a very interesting thread!
