Northeastern suburbs of Paris : Aubervilliers

Aubervilliers is a commune in the northeastern suburbs of Paris, France (Seine Saint Denis). It is located 7.2 km. (4.5 miles) from Notre Dame.
Aubervillier is one of poorest municipality of Paris metro, desepit its high crime rate, it has been mostly spared by the riots.


Land area : 5.76 km²
Population : 72,000



We begin in Porte de la Villette but I mostly stayed in the limit between Aubervilliers and Pantin.

Despite being a poor district of Paris, I'd say that it looks reasonable! It certainly doesn't look like an urban wasteland like so many sink council estates in Britain can.

Thanks for the photos, Minato, I really appreciate seeing the more "real" photos of Paris.

Great pictures from unseen areas. From your picture i get the impression you didnt went further into the social projects. Would you say its unsafe to walk there around with a camera? Did you ever felt unconfortable walking around these areas?

Of course in the empty social project or empty area with a big camera, I feel quite unsafe.
In busy vibrant area, I don't felt unconfortable.

Haven't been there for a while now, but that picture made me remember it.

This project with Y-shaped brick towers always reminded me of those you would see in northeastern USA. Not so common round here.

Good job as usual.

That's right simailar at project in New York or Chicago, In the oposite the southern inner suburbs we have brick 10 floors building that remind London.

Aubervillier is very run down as one of poorest municiplaity of Paris but there is many redevelopment project.
Porte d'Aubervillier, La Plaine... the metro line 12 will be extented at Mairie d'Aubervillier, not far the station Evangile of the RER E.

Honestly in few years Northeastern Paris (19th arrondissement, Saint Denis, Aubervillier, Pantin...) will be the most interesting part in term of urban project.

Are they selling or cooking anything on top of the supermarket trolleys or they are just waiting for someone?

Oh..thanks..
But I think it's a bit insane, using the supermarket trolley to cook food and sell. I just went to Paris early this year, I would say, the nice part is very nice, but there is still a big proportion of area which is really not so nice.

Nice pictures, for a poor area this does not look so bad at all!
Looks like I could perfectly live there but I don't know how the atmosphere and the crime really is like in the not so busy areas.

Great pics, Minato!
I´ve been to Paris in 2006, but, as tourist, I saw a very different Paris (except for Bagnolet, the suburb in which my hotel was) - the Paris of tourists.
It´s nice to see an unseen area of metropolitan Paris. I think this area insn´t that bad (In fact, Brazil has much worser areas in its big cities).
Keep sharing your pics wit us.
Au revoir!
