Worried about the 'Saint Josse effect' - rubbish strewn streets, high unemployment, and criminality.

Rue de l'Association

A manager of a restaurant, very gragarious, sje liked to hang out with bohemian types. I named my son after one of her flamboyant boyfriends who went off to Perpignan. Ula died of cancer in 2004, but her name is still on the front door as of Easter (2015) .

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:some good beers, well located for European travels
  • Cons:too much ghettoization, racial tensions
  • In a nutshell:like the idea -- a multilingual/national city
