A walk in western Paris: south of La Défense

In this forum, I think that pretty much everybody know the skyscraper district of La Défense but don't you know areas around it ?
From the provencal village-like town center of Puteaux to the town center of Suresnes wich was rebuilt in the 70's.
Welcome in the south of la Défense

Which commune(s) are shown here Minatu ku? If I'm not mistaken, the whole area around La Défense was massively rebuilt and renovated and still changing. One can still see in your 2nd and 4th picture what so much of the area around La Défense was like before. It's good those rundown buildings are still there to remind us and make us appreciate the changes.

Not if you look my photo threads, most are in non touristy districts or show a non tourist vision of touristy areas.
Thank you.
