Architecture on the river

Sometimes when I miss living in Paris, I think of its uglier manifestations, like Front de Seine, the eyesore that sits on the west side of the Left Bank:

In comparison, look at Chicago’s riverside architecture:

The rest of Paris is beautiful, though.

One Response to Architecture on the river

  1. paris is beautiful. but not in the springtime, as commonly quoted. No, in the spring, Paris just rains hail and cold spit at you intermittently all day for 6 weeks. Sometimes, when I miss living in Chicago, I think about the people who got mugged at gunpoint outside my apartment in Evanston, and I am glad that nobody in Paris owns a gun.
