City Secrets: Paris- Barry Lewis’ entries

A guide with the “secrets” of many contributors--artists, academics, bons vivants--giving you their tips on Paris, here are my entries to City Secrets: Paris, published 2014.  The original book has no illustrations but this is the internet, so I included both photos and extra text, expanding a bit from the original material. I couldn’t help it; Paris is too interesting---& I had the photos. I especially appreciate the help of Paris-based photographer Fabrice Moussus who did such fine work providing me with more current views.
