The northeastern banlieues of Seine-Saint-Denis which are supposed to be the so very scary parts of the Paris region with over a million people has a lower homicide rate than what would be considered a very safe major US city. What is the major city you live closest to? Perhaps a comparison would help put things in perspective.

When was the last time you’ve ever been anywhere near the region you’re posting about? Are you really taking that article at face value or are you just putting one on us?

That must be my 1meter76 and 75kg. I know that's pretty impressive

So people have zero idea how incredibly stupid they sound. But where are we?
In Citydata...

But since I live there, in Paris (well no, in the dangerous ghetto Créteil), I m obviously biased, lying, and cannot see the truth niarf niarf

"Big Five" of London, New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Paris often gets neglected here for a number of reasons.

Cultural engagement: "Top Three" of London, New York and Paris.
Various other lists also include one or two old world, typically Western European, cities.

Fashion capitals: "Top Three" of Paris, Milan, New York (with occasional mention of London).
According to media coverage, industry engagement and the presence of the biggest fashion labels.


The problem, as far as I can see, with the "Big Four" is that London and New York are heavily overrepresented in related discussions or threads. In some cases, the discussions turn into bitter London versus New York rivalries, with the others being somewhat ignored.

I think it's interesting that, in earlier discussions going back a decade or two, Paris had much more leverage in competing against London and New York by dint of its cultural heritage. Also, though are many advocates for Tokyo who give good arguments for why it should be included among a "top four", it never really received the same public engagement as the other three.
Better than what classification? The Big Four or the Big Seven?

The problem as I see it, if people are going to disagree with a study by a reputable firm like J.L.L., they probably ought to give reasons why. Just saying “This is BS” or “I agree/disagree” without evidence or arguments is a bit daft

The linked article included a video that, to my eyes at least, appeared to show a riot in progress. Are you saying that Breitbart is so inaccurate that this alleged riot did not take place?

Welcome in a large city where protests exist and can happen but it doesn't mean that Paris is turning into a warzone.
It's far to be something common. This article is over one year old.

You can walk without any problem in this neighborhood (infact the tents were just located on one block).
I can take pictures of the area tomorrow if you want.
