The area around the Trocadero struck me as where the close ties between France and the US are best seen. The Trocadero is on Av du President Wilson, the is a Pres Kennnedy Av, Av de New York and as rue Benjamin Franklin comes round the side there is a statue of Franklin. He spent a lot of time in Paris and resided just down the street (there is a medalllion and plaque making the spot, but it didn't seem worth the trip to see them). Franklin lived in Paris for 8 years (rather comfortably thanks to local friends) and was very instrumental in winning French support for the American Revolution.
