I knew the 13th district around the China town has several tall apartment buildings but I did not know it had some of the charming-looking homes. Some of those are "un-Parisly" colorful!

Thanks for the comments.

@ Martounet : I couldn't see all the XIIIe in three hours, and wanted to show not typically parisian things, like the great alignements of the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital. Maybe another time...

The opera house :





Quite different, Canal de Saint-Denis, view towards the XIXe arrondissement :





Some commies + Tour de la Villette :



Suburbs don't have the monopoly of difficult districts, this is one of the roughest estates in Paris municipality, there were some serious gang violence problems here back in 2008 :



Some redevelopments are happening on this wharf :



La Villette/Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie :



Some old warehouses...





Rue de Cambrai :

I like most of those lower older buildings. Those highrises are so awful.

I agree that the red commies block has a charm and the new buildings of la Vache Noir (excepted the commercial center) are quite dull.
