Looking For New Exciting Things To Do In Paris? Montreuil Might Be Your Next Stop

In today’s episode, we travel to one of the Parisian neighborhoods named Montreuil to talk with Rebecca Dry, founder of the media platform Love Montreuil.Montreuil is to Paris what Oakland is to San Francisco, a vibrant multicultural young dynamic and creative suburb of Paris. (This interview has been edited for the purpose of this blog post)

One of the most secrets of Parisian neighborhoods, Montreuil is well-known for its left-wing politics and its diverse immigrants population.The city has been led by a succession of Mayors affiliated with the French communist but also the Green party.

We talked to Rebecca Dry about:

  • Montreuil: One Of The Most Diverse Parisian Neighborhoods: An Incredible Melting Pot Right At The Door Of Paris.

“So it's almost like a hidden jewel and lots more people from Paris are coming to live here now, which is good. They wouldn't have touched it 10 years ago and now it's kind of trendy to live here, you know, so they call it the Brooklyn of Paris…and it tends to be where people maybe dare to be a bit different.

  • Rebecca’s Parisian’s Neighborhoods Life

It is an amazing place there's nowhere like it in France. There's nowhere like it here. 1,500 artists live here. There's something like eight to 900 artists workshops. There's tens of fab labs. There is a punk and rock music culture but also a gypsy culture.

  • Montreuil’s Commitment To Nature: The ‘Mur De Pêches’

Culture in Montreuil is everywhere and along with culture, there is the environment with many public vegetable gardens and the famous ‘Mur de pêche’, which means the wall of peach.

People from Montreuil are different. They are rebellious.

  • The Inspiration Behind Love Montreuil

I thought to myself, there isn't a website about this town that I myself would love to read and fall upon. You know, I would love to know about what's going on in this town. So there was nothing. I thought, why don't I create one? So I decided to do it and I decided to create it myself from scratch, like the website, everything, the photos, everything, the content, with a view to valorizing and valorizing my town and also the people who make it move and shake.

  • The Paradoxe Of Diversity And Gentrification 

If we loose diversity, that wouldn't be Montreuil anymore.

  • The Need To Give Back
