  1. You’re right, I didn’t realise just how run down it’s become these days. You’d think they wouldn’t tolerate the graffiti, which isn’t exactly ‘modern art’, is it?

    • I know, right!? Paris Karin went there in the Spring and came back talking about how chic it was. She said from the front, it’s very nice and the back part is kind of hidden from the tea room and the, apparently, very exclusive restaurant on top.

      Thanks for stopping by, Sab, and see you in the streets,

  2. Is it the Museum of Modern Art?

    (So hungry for more Chupa Chups) 😉

  3. Musée d’art moderne “de la ville de Paris (not to be confused with simply Museum of Modern art)

  4. This is the side seen from Ave New York. I think that this is a part of Palais de Tokyo.

    • Third time’s the charm, Genie! Indeed, it’s the Palais de Tokyo as seen from the Ave New York. Congrats, that’s 3 in a row!

  5. Yay! I’ll share them, of course!

    When I looked up Palais de Tokyo as I had been there for a night exhibit once, I found that the Musée d’art Moderne de la Ville de Paris is the eastern wing of the Palais and was dedicated as a museum in 1961. It is owned by the City of Paris and the west wing (Palais de Tokyo) is owned by the French state. (Correct me on any of this as all I have ever known is Tokyo)

    They need to clean up the Ave NY side for sure.

    Off to get a sugar-high on a Chupa Chups!
