I love downtown Paris, there are so many local shops and restaurants and the owners are so friendly and helpful. It’s relaxing to take a stroll and pop in some of the historical buildings, beautiful scenery.
I live in Paris and yes it's a good and beautiful place to live BUT the only issue is THE DRUGS they need to get it under control and if for some unknown reason they can't then call in State Police and what other they might need. These drug dealers/runners need to be picked up.!!! BUT it's a shame when you see for yourself a police officer walk up to a girl and say oh yea we know you smoking and carrying BUT we ain't worried about you. I'm like WTF. Plus it's awful when Paris Police know about a certain house and drugs are being sold and used and they DO NOTHING about it
