Last visit I saw a street brawl in Pigalle, steps from Moulin Rouge. The areas around Gare du Nord and Gare d l'Est are pretty seedy. Then there's that area north of Les Halles with all the African businesses and obvious illegal stuff going on.
Right, its the ultra wealthy and third world immigrants willing to endure cramped conditions who live in the city center now.
