Butte-aux-Cailles, in southeastern Paris, is a traditionally left-leaning neighborhood that has a bit of a village feel. Mixed in with modern apartment buildings are small houses that look like they could be in a village miles away from Paris.
There's lots of grafitti art in the neighborhood, particularly by the artist Miss-Tic.
We saw a Wallace fountain in the neighborhood. These drinking fountains were installed in the late 1800's and provided potable water to the poor. They still do that, being an important resource for the homeless. They are also appreciated by thirsty tourists.
