Hah! Just reading an old Maigret novel with a murder set in Rue Popincourt.
At the time of writing it seems the street was a somewhat criminal neighbourhood and not posh or trendy at all.Interetsing to see how Pairs changes….

we are staying on Rue Popincourt for 3 nights in December, it is great to know we don’t have to travel far for great food…and gluten free too! So glad I stumbled across this page, Merci

Why have I never visited here? So close too.
Maybe today!

I spent the whole month of May living in the 11th, near Faidherbe-Chaligny metro. Now I want to buy an apartment in that neighbourhood and live there forever. Well, I can dream…

Look how clean the streets and sidewalks look ! What a great neighborhood, I wish I was there right now !

Hope you get to Paris soon Candice~ -Erica
