|Subject: Re: Skyscraper vistas|
The view from Paris's Samaritaine department store WAS terrific. Alas, the store is closed for several years as it undergoes major renovations, allegedly to resolve fire and safety issues.
Other vistas in Paris: the Montparnasse tower, which has the advantage of not having to actually look at it; it spoils Paris's skyline. And the Arc de Triumphe, which isn't really a skyscraper, from which you get a fabulous view of the Champs-Elysees.
Bons voyages, Evan in Paris
