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

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.

It took many trips to Paris before I went to the 2.62 square-mile 19th Arrondissement, and then I wondered what took me so long. Granted, it is in the far Northeast corner of the city and takes awhile to reach from Tourist Central, but that...More

You'll need a good reason to venture into the 19th as it is a ways out, and lacking the signature attractions of other districts. We went to visit the Buttes Chaumont and greatly enjoyed the excursion, but it was a ways. Highly residential with diverse...More

La Villette
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
