Paris 19 : a working-class area? An accessible and pleasant neighborhood to live
With a long-standing reputation as a popular arrondissement, the nineteenth is now one of the most sought after areas of the city with a high number of select green spaces which truly make it the 'green lung' of the capital. The streets surrounding the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont (Rue Manin, Rue de Crimée, and Rue Botzaris) are often full of future Parisian residents all looking for a little greenery. Despite this revival of interest in the quiet streets, the gardens and neighbourhood life, particularly around Belleville and La Villette, the nineteenth remains one of the cheapest arrondissements of Paris – and can be a very good reason for living there!
But there are also many other reasons for living in the 19th... Families will appreciate the large number of schools (which can accommodate a total capacity of 15,000 students), including both nursery and primary schools, as well as collèges and lycées. The nineteenth arrondissement also hosts students from the École des Ingénieurs de la Ville de Paris, the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture, and the Conservatoire. For the daily necessities, those staying in the nineteenth have a choice of seven markets (including the Marché Jean-Jaurès and the Marché Villette) and many supermarkets, such as the Monoprix on the Avenue Secretan, and the Canal Bio on the Quai de la Loire.
For transports in and around the area, there are 28 metro stations, a tram, bus network, and 62 'stations “Vélib'” for city bikes. Very well-served by any type of public transportation, you'll be able to get around the district effortless (shopping, outings etc) if you opt for a furnished rental in the 19th arrondissement of Paris.
