There's a lot of construction going on in New York
these days—and none of it comes anywhere
near the charm of these buildings in Paris, put up
in the 19th century by the hundreds by Baron Haussmann.
I understand that cost and ease of construction
(and just how tall can we make it?) dictate what's getting
torn down and what's going up in its place in NYC,
but I'm glad these elegant buildings are still there in Paris.
