Jonesing for Saint Germain des Prés

Returning to Jazz A Saint Germain at yesterday’s Mouffe sent me searching for that album’s cover track, Debbie Harry’s version of “Il N’Y a Plus d’Apres.” I couldn’t find it on YouTube, but Juliette Greco is just as alluring, especially for the grainy 60s feel of the street footage. That made me jones all the more for Saint-Germain des Prés. I’m not alone in this yearning. What other neighborhood has tributes like these produced by Peterkein and DiegoHCantor?

    If you get to Paris let me take you on a walk through the 11th and the 12th…. Saint Germain des Prés… but there are no decent markets there!

    You bet! The next time I get to Paris I’ll take you up on the offer. As soon as I’d posted that question about tributes to neighborhoods, I thought, “Wait a minute. What about the Mouffe? What about the Latin Quarter?” I felt like a disloyal homeboy.

    BTW, have you been commuting to your place in the Marais?
