Above is a building on
the Avenue Frédéric de Play with interesting design around the
third from top storey. Paris, and especially the 7th, is full of little gems like this. You tend not to find them in guide books - you just have to keep a look out for them.
Narrowest house in Paris
The on the right above is considered to be the narrowest house in Paris, and will often be pointed out to you on the
sight-seeing boats that go up and down the Seine. I have never managed to spot
it from a boat, so here it is. It is on Quai Voltaire near Pont
Royal. I wonder how they manage the stairs?
