Elaine Sciolino, the former Paris bureau chief of The New York Times, invites us on a tour of her favorite Parisian street, offering an homage to street life and the pleasures of Parisian living. While many cities suffer from the leveling effects of globalization, the rue des Martyrs maintains its distinct allure. On this street, the patron saint of France was beheaded and the Jesuits took their first vows.
"Not just for Paris lovers."
"In Paris, Expensive Tables Sit Empty" is from the May 03, 2016 Lifestyle section of The New York Times. It was written by Elaine Sciolino and narrated by Kristi Burns.
