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.

The most unfortunate consequence of Paris Hilton’s celebrity…

…is that when you do a google image search for “Paris,” France it yields more photos of her than it does of that beautiful city.
