Well, these are inner suburbs so they are more the equivalent to places like Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx etc. as far as density goes, but unlike those places, these inner suburbs were never annexed. However, outer suburbs in Paris and other French and European cities are usually much denser than American suburbs, in general, clearly due to lack of space, but also age and tradition. Where age is concerned, some suburban city centers existed well before the car, and at some time, were surrounded by rural or undevelopped land. With time, they grew, along with Paris, until they touched each other. In fact, some suburban city centers are older than the outer districts of Paris-proper.

BTW, some of these sunny streets lacking the Haussmann façades of Paris-proper remind me a bit of Athens, especially with some of those 70s-like buildings where each floor has "layers."

^sans doute.


Un jour pourrais-tu prendre quelques photos des quartiers ou' habite la classe moyenne?

Ces photos-ci sont bonnes, mais si je vais habiter en Paris (j'espere), Il faut que j'aie une idee de ce qui m'attend la-bas. hehe :)
