Northern part of the neighbourhood is very shady and feels very unsafe ( around Port de La Chapelle). We saw many drunks / heavily high people ( not pot high, rather heroine high ).. and there were MANY of them, some just standing at the...More
We booked a hotel room here because it was economical and could catch the metro easily and visit Paris. What we found out by walking around was the place isn’t safe. People kept asking us for change and there’s nothing much to see here. If...More
I've booked a condo for a week here as it was more affordable. The first night here, my husband and I took a walk for two blocks and we already do not feel safe as we got asked for money a few times. We also...More
There is very little to see here as far as tourism goes, though I would highly recommend the Bassin de la Villette area, particularly in the summer as it becomes a beach with swimming and activities aimed toward families and children, but enjoyed by adults...More
At least that is my opinion. The 19th has the canals, Buttes Chaumont, some lovely hillside neighborhoods, and don't forget the Communist Party's HQ! Paris' historic working class area is in the midst of changes. Some good views from the hillsides.

- the Canal de l'Ourcq, where it is really nice...More
This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the center.
