Looks like it! I can't tell from that angle. There was a semi-functioning jazz club on the ground floor and a small theatre over the street.

I did absolutely nothing but read, walk and watch movies. It was bliss!

I also lived here on the rue Jacques-Callot which was the setting for Zola's novel 'Thérèse Raquin' under it's old name, le passage du Pont Neuf.

and it was a block away from l'as du felafel which is famous for being lenny kravitz's favorite felafel. they have signs and photos to prove it

I can spend hours reading this

Phil, is that on Rue des Rosiers? My friend, Miles, and I used to go there on Sundays.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:20 (fourteen years ago) link

Sorry, didn't see your clarification. That place is great.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:21 (fourteen years ago) link

yeah, oh sunday afternoons were crazy. all the jewish teens would stand and pose and rev their motorbike/scooters.

phil-two (phil-two), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:22 (fourteen years ago) link

I miss Chez Marianne on the Rue des Rosiers. That is where I discovered my great love for mezze.

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:25 (fourteen years ago) link

i love how that street is jewish on the east side and gay on the west end. which was perfect for me seeing that most of my crushes are closeted jewboys.

phil-two (phil-two), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:27 (fourteen years ago) link

errrrrm...

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:27 (fourteen years ago) link

le dictionnaire historique..that's what the homeless guys sell on the metro!!

i don't have any pictures of where i lived.

phil's use of "jewboys" bugs me.

Stop it adam. You're married.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:30 (fourteen years ago) link

Not meaning to be flip, but some of my Jewish friends call each other "Jewboy".

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:30 (fourteen years ago) link

oh you're usually pretty easily bugged though. is it that offensive?

That street name dictionary was b-day present a zillion years ago.

From the Devil's Dictionary:

HEBREW, n. A male Jew, as distinguished from the Shebrew, an altogether superior creation.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:33 (fourteen years ago) link

At least mine is.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:34 (fourteen years ago) link

All of this is subjective.

In the Jardin des Plantes, if you walk about halfway down the length of the park and turn to the left, there's a park bench that's almost completely shaded by an overhanging branch. It's nice to sit there and daydream or watch schoolchildren on excursions.

youn, Thursday, 6 January 2005 01:43 (fourteen years ago) link

But that was five years ago. I also like the Degas pastels at the Musee d'Orsay. The room they're in is all dark because they don't want the colors to fade.

youn, Thursday, 6 January 2005 01:45 (fourteen years ago) link

i'm not easily bugged!

i just get the same vaguely queasy reaction to "i get crushes on jewboys" as i do to momus's "i really like the asian women."

Amateur(ist) (Amateur(ist)), Thursday, 6 January 2005 03:05 (fourteen years ago) link

although i guess if curly black hair and six o'clock shadows turns you on, then there's no debate.

Amateur(ist) (Amateur(ist)), Thursday, 6 January 2005 03:18 (fourteen years ago) link

I spent three weeks here:

is that the mije? i spent a week there too

phil-two (phil-two), Thursday, 6 January 2005 03:27 (fourteen years ago) link

I was going to ask if there was a book about the street names of Paris!

phil: yeah, it is.

tokyo rosemary (rosemary), Thursday, 6 January 2005 03:29 (fourteen years ago) link

Is that a nunnery, Rosemary?

.adam (nordicskilla), Thursday, 6 January 2005 16:01 (fourteen years ago) link

Well, I did stay with mostly girls.

tokyo rosemary (rosemary), Thursday, 6 January 2005 16:26 (fourteen years ago) link

That must have been tough.

I heart Paris in her video tape!

Paris Hilton's jaw reportedly hit the floor when she crashed a party in Malibu on Saturday night and walked in to find guests huddled around a big-screen television watching a copy of her infamous sex tape."

two years pass...
look at all these guys talking about paris

anyone in paris, these days?

RJG, Friday, 13 April 2007 17:19 (twelve years ago) link

I'm in Barcelona, not Paris, but has anyone seen "Paris, je t'aime" - the absolute chimera of a film starring and directed by everyone? It made me fall in love with Paris again.

danzig, Friday, 13 April 2007 17:59 (twelve years ago) link

haven't seen it but heard it was not good

you live in barcelona?

RJG, Friday, 13 April 2007 18:04 (twelve years ago) link

It's wildly uneven and at times quite disappointing - esp Gus Van Sant and Wes Craven's parts, as well as a few of the French ones, also the film makes it seem like every second person in Paris is American - but because the shorts kept coming at you like shots of adrenalin, and because there were some genuinely great and wacky moments, it was a heady movie experience.

And yes, for the time being, I'm living in Barcelona.

going to paris in early april .... anyone out there? favorite restaurants? can't-miss sights on a short three-day trip? (the next four days we'll be in prague)

It's been said before, but: catacombs.

Piggybacking a stay in Paris in late April as my wife has s work conference, it's going to be so great, I love this city.

Can anybody advise, I plan to visit/photograph as many of the lovely passages in central Paris as I can, but are they all worth visiting?

The spire was undergoing renovation so I wouldn't be surprised if it spread from there. It's tragic that such a thing could happen in spite of the painstaking precautions they no doubt took.

oh my god

Plinka Trinka Banga Tink (Eliza D.), Monday, 15 April 2019 17:37 (seven months ago) link

they've been doing work on the roof for a few weeks so this is probably connected to this.

I mean, a huge stone building is not just going to burn down. but the roof looks like it'll be gone. most of the top of the church, including the big spire, is only from the mid 19th century.
