Now THAT is good urban planning! Simply one of the best threads of a suburb I've seen in a long time!

I was thinking the same thing as well.

Actually I'm pleasantly surprised because I always heard bad things about Paris having some awful and rundown suburbs, and only city was nice. I have plans to visit Paris this fall for about three days, hopefully I'll get a chance to see a small part of one of the burbs.

That's true some suburbs are bad but these are more located in the north and the east.
Actually all the inner suburbs looks like at Boulogne, generally in poorer. (Boulogne has one of higher median income in France, higher than Paris )

The southern inner suburbs are know for be the one of safer place in the urban area.
The western suburbs are wealthy, with a lot of office buildings (La Defense is located in western inner suburbs)
And the northern et eastern suburbs are know for be poorer.

But actually the inner communes of eastern suburbs are beautiful and in redevelopment.

Paris has also american like suburbs, but it is far than the center and I don't have car.

Trust me don't feel the need to get photos of the Americanesque suburbs. American suburbs are the plague of mankind, truly terrible places. I just want to pretend that the entire Paris metro looks like this. That said, great pics of yet another beautiful Parisian suburb. Thanks for these tours.

A lot of Paris threads. Me likey!

I'm curious what does look American in these pics?
They look very much European to me...

Yeah; I agree with Shiro that this looks like an affluent European neighborhood. The lush green streets with that style of apartment building actually looks like certain streets in Madrid. What exactly screams "American" in the photos?
