  • La Goutte d'Or, what a nice name for a neighborhood still a little desolating. Fortunately, it is not large, rather narrow, stretching a short distance from Barbès to the Chapel and going back to the periph. A good half of its area includes the railroad tracks that cross it all the way from the Gare du Nord, which ultimately reduces the unattractive atmosphere that dominates. For having lived 7 years right next door, it happened to me to cross the Goutte d'Or on various occasions rather than to go through the very crowded Boulevard de la Chapelle. A lot of dirt and foul smells in some streets, you have to admit. We still have to put some things in perspective, especially with regard to insecurity. Yes, this area is certainly one of the poorest in Paris, inhabited mainly by a population of African descent. But there are few people in the streets, we regularly meet moms who walk their baby in a stroller, and there are still some classic shops as in any neighborhood. In the middle of the day, we walk there without feeling of particular insecurity, and we can even enjoy one of the most famous sights of the Sacré-Coeur from the rue de Chartres, a small street which by way from the Boulevard de la Chapelle. However, at night, I still prefer to avoid crossing the Goutte d'Or, although very quiet, and favour the main axes much more enlightened and frequented. This should not last much longer, because recently there has been a willingness to rehabilitate those neighborhoods that are delivered to themselves. Thus, Barbès tends to boboïse and we can think that this tendency will end up touching the heart of the Golden drop in the years to come. One can see the willingness of the City Hall of Paris to want to make the capital a town for the wealthy, forcing the most disadvantaged to clear in the suburbs. Do you know where this beautiful name comes from? Let's go back in time a few centuries ago in the middle ages. The District of today was then the full countryside with its own vineyards (just as there is a small end in Montmartre). The Golden drop holds its name directly from the beautiful colour of the wine that was once produced there. A little history is always interesting, right?
