Southwestern inner suburbs of Paris, part 1

After my trip in southern inner suburbs of Paris this is my tour of southwestern inner suburbs.

I visited.

Issy les Moulineaux
Paris and its inner suburbs

Land area : 4.25 km² 1,64 sq mi
Population : 63,000
Density : 14,824/km² 38,414/sq mi
Issy-les-Moulineaux has successfully recovered from its industrial past and is now located at the heart of the business district of the Val de Seine, which is specialized in communication activities. Today, despite a population which is booming, Issy-les-Moulineaux harbours more employment than inhabitants.

Boulogne-Billancourt
Paris and its inner suburbs

Land area : 6.17 km² 2.38 sq mi
Population : 109,400
Density : 17,731/km² 45,966/sq mi
Boulogne-Billancourt is the most populous commune in the suburbs of Paris and one of the most densely populated municipalities in Europe. Formerly an important industrial pole, it has successfully recovered into business activities and is now hosting major communication companies headquarters in the business district of the Val de Seine.

Now this is the type of "suburban" living I could actually appreciate. Looks great! Can't wait to see more of your photos from the southern inner suburbs of Paris.

What I meant was that more "suburbs" should look like this.

Threads like this are wonderful visual representations of what people on this forum mean when they say that there is a difference between 'suburbs' and 'suburbia'. Great stuff.
