Paris, around the parc Monceau.

Around the parc Monceau, in the 8th arrondissement (in the "quartier chic")

I do like Paris' working-class neighborhoods but the neighborhoods of the rich west side are just amazingly impeccable, as is the case with this one around Parc Monceau.

Chicy indeed. Paris is the bees knees of mega-cities. Gotta luv the classical, beaux-arts and eclectic charm of its streetscapes!!

Nice shots

There really are very few cities in the world that can quite compare to Paris.

Thank you for sharing your shots. I particularly like the shots of the smaller sidestreets where you get a canyon effect with the buildings like this:

Are these the western parts of the city, where the nouveaux riches live?

It's a small investment bank specialized in M&A. In this district, there are only banks, private equity funds, palaces and that's it.

It's busy the whole week except the week end. By the way, I ate at the Hilton restaurant (a few meter from my office) at noon. AMAZING...

Actually, there are 4 golden gates in Parc Monceau, one for each main entrance.
