Ambiance
This is another very cosmopolitan area, which is home to two of the large railway stations – Gare de l’Est and Gare du Nord (Eurostar). The area is lively and more working class around the stations, and blends into calmer districts to the south.

Boulevard Magenta is a very busy area but as you head east you approach the up and coming area of the Canal St Martin. The canal has become popular with a trendy crowd and is pedestrianised on weekends offering a relaxed atmosphere in which to stroll, enjoy the quirky cafés or browse the small boutiques.

To the south you head to the bustling Place de la République with its restaurants, bars and cafés.

Apartments
République to the south offers a variety of apartments and the up and coming area of the Canal St Martin is becoming quite sought after making it one of the more expensive parts of the tenth. It is the only area to offer any real sense of community.

The north being somewhat unkempt offers less expensive properties in a mix of traditional and modern architecture. The west again offers a bustling city life and the apartments from the late Haussmann influence tend to be slightly run down.
