paris tuesday 21 july

we traveled to a charming french village today without leaving paris!!!. the metro took us to butte aux caillis, a quiet quarter of paris with cobbled streets, attractive lamp posts and small art deco houses with fancy brick work decorative tiles and timbers. this historically working class district is a throw back to the past and quickly became the place we would like to live, if we lived in paris. a short walk up a hill and you are away from the noise and activity of the city – it feels and looks just like a small quaint french village in the country. it is fun to explore the many narrow and crooked streets. some have quirky restaurants, cafes and shops (no global chain stores). on one little colorful street are two compounds of town houses set around intimate and colorful court yards. the houses were once worker’s villas built to resemble traditional buildings in alsace and in russia. now they are highly desirable homes. on another street there are iron fenced brick houses in the art nouveau style and over each entrance way is a glass awning similar in style to the famous nouveau entrances to the metro.

in the center of the quarter’s square is an art nouveau fountain from which you can fill you can fill your cup or water bottle with natural spring water.

we made a stop in a “honey” store where we bought a piece of spiced honey cake ( bees flying everywhere in the store!!!) and then went to lunch at one of the quirky restaurants, with a convivial atmosphere, which was packed with locals. we dined al fresco at a small out door table. our lunch was delicious, the wine was excellent and the price was unbelievable reasonable. i had sweet grilled sardines (three of them), salad and a potato casserole with cheese and cream. neal had a huge pot of sweet and tiny mussels prepared in a new way (for us), catalan style – which meant that there was a heap of piperade on top and the potato casserole. bread of course and salad and a half liter of a fruity, but dry, sauvignon blanc. total cost of the meal 23 euros.

then it was off to the beach (yes, in paris).
summer transforms paris, or at least parts of the city, into the riviera…..the cityscape dons greenery, the seine riverside and car thoroughfares become car-free resorts. the paris plages (paris beaches), now in its seventh year, started this week and will be around for the next four weeks.
the big beach runs on the right bank from pont de sully to the louvre museum, about three kilometers. you are on the beach with historic paris all around you. we listened to jazz while watching boat traffic on the seine and looking at the ancient buildings on cite. we sat on the narrow sandy beach (about 15 feet wide) while kids built sand castles and adults took in the sun (it was close to 90 degrees). in other locations there are floating swimming pools in the river, wall climbing, boules, ping-pong and the like. there are refreshment stands and different kinds of restaurants. sprinklers are strategically placed to cool you off. porta-potties are concealed behind green screens. the theme of this year’s plage is ecology so the color is green and there are potted plants and palm trees in huge green pots.
we also visited the plage close to the butte. this area by the river is very modern with large-scale contemporary office buildings, a major sports complex and the national library. this was a smaller and quieter beach anchored by a large floating swimming pool with people in swimsuits – speedo type for the men of course (no nude or topless bathers to be seen on any beach). there were also cafes with large groups of friends enjoying themselves over glasses of wine and beer, wi-fi areas and free newspapers to read or books to borrow. along this stretch of the river different types of boats are moored from an old lighthouse boat to a chinese junk and in the evening they become cafes with a variety of musical shows.
the third plage area, la villette, which we haven’t visited yet, is suppose to have water sports like kayaks and rowboats.
interestingly, paris plages, which cost the city millions of dollars or euros, is not done for the tourists. in fact most of the people who visit it are locals, as we can affirm by watching the many families and couples out for a day on the beach. it stays open until midnight and opens at 8AM (many museums do not open until noon).
then we returned to our neighborhood for a coffee for me and a pastis for neal before doing our daily shopping. at the cheese store, alexandra, (who we have become friendly with), recommended a reblochon to go with the pates and salad that we were going to have for yet another simple dinner. she explained that the cheese is made from the milk of three different breeds of cows. never knew that different cow’s milk tastes different. it was a creamy cheese with a slightly nutty after taste – not too strong……perfect with the red wi

Window Grill, 1929, for the Norris Theatre, Norristown, Pennsylvania.

In the foyer of the Wolfsonian-FIU, 1001 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach.

Architects: William Harold Lee and Armand Carroll, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Manufacturer: Conkling Armstrong. Glazed terra cotta.

Concieved as part of an imposing three-storey entrance to the Norris Theatre in Norristown, Pennsylvania, the window grille is an example of the stylized, decorative treatment that embellished the facades of theatres in America throughout the 1920s and 1930s. Composed of over 100 glazed terra cotta tiles, the rigid geometry of the layout belies the use of a rich, floral decorative scheme. Such architectural decoration was popualrized by exposure to the French pavilions at the Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes in 1925.

Designed in 1929 by Philadelphia architects William Harold Lee and Armand Carroll, the Norris Theatre was praised upon its opening in 1931 for being 'ultra modern in equipment and decoration."
