Gay Holiday Shopping in Paris

Paris, France Gay Holiday ShoppingFor the Parisian tourist industry, 2011 has been one of the best years ever! The number of visitors has reached its highest levels in the past 5 years. Paris is still the most visited city in the world and Le Marais is slowly becoming the most desired area in Paris where cost of real estate is approaching prices in London and New York. Only Monaco remains more expensive at this point.

Last Tuesday, November 15, I was interviewed about the economic situation in le Marais district for the prime time economic talk show on BFM Business TV. I was honoured to be given 10 minutes to talk about my knowledge of Le Marais economics. I called it the first luxury alter-globalist district in the world, and in fact it’s somewhat true.

It’s hard to feel the crisis here when we’re surrounded by so many magnificent historical buildings, chic boutiques, good restaurants and fantastic urban facilities. We are lucky to live in the hyper center. The city policy for car owners is a nightmare so riding a bike is a wonderful alternative. Many streets are blocked off on Sundays and become pedestrian zones. Rue des Francs Bourgeois, the street dividing the 3rd and 4th, is one of them. The result is a massive invasion of visitors who come to visit our “historic” island within the city. It is very lively.
