Quote from: humbert on May 11, 2022, 04:44 AMLet me ask: atop the businesses that operate on the Champs Elysées appear to be located at the bottom of a building several floors high with windows. Do people live there? If so, then how do they get in and out of their homes?
Quote from: scarface on May 11, 2022, 02:07 PMI guess there are many (too many) offices in the higher floors. There are certainly a few apartments too. If you are referring to the location of the Mcdo, it seems there is a door located on the left.

Quote from: humbert on May 13, 2022, 04:53 AMWho in their right mind would want to live in one of those apartments on the Champs-Élysées? Not only is it notoriously expensive but the street noise must be intolerable.
Quote from: humbert on May 13, 2022, 04:53 AMWith respect to McDonald's, unless my memory fails me there was second floor (this was Nov 2007). We walked in from the street and right there was the front counter. There was no place to eat. We had to sit down in the middle of the Champs-Élysées to swallow a hamburger. BTW, judging how the people are dressed, you must have taken this picture some time during the past winter.
Quote from: scarface on May 15, 2022, 12:48 AMYou're certainly right. And If the avenue of the Champs Elysées is Europe's most expensive retail location, and one of the most expensive in the world after the 5th avenue in New York, for the real estate prices it's not the most expensive street. In Paris, the most expensive street is the avenue Montaigne (which adjoins the Champs Elysées). Probably a perfect place for the would-be starlets.
Quote from: humbert on May 15, 2022, 04:38 AMCheck this link. If you refer to residential property values, Paris and New York aren't too high on the list. If you mean commercial, according to this link New York is 4th, and Paris isn't on the list at all. Naturally I found this on Google.
