Apartment and tips for Paris move

Hello, Hive, I'm planning on moving to Paris a few months for work and pleasure. As a native Swede and a member of the EU group of states, I guess I'll have an easier time getting a somewhat reasonably priced apartment reasonably close to Cité, Montmartre or what have you (Notre Dame I guess would be the center point everything revolves around). Has the Hive got any good suggestions regarding apartment-finding? Other tips on good areas to live, areas to avoid, would be great as a general guide. [more inside]

Paris Shopping on the Cheap?

I'll be in Paris for a few days next month, and I'd like to check out some thrift stores. I'm not looking for anything fancy or designer, just maybe some cute skirts or sweaters. Most of the articles I've seen online talk about places where you can get couture for a fraction of the price, but that's not really my thing. Also, this might be silly, but I'm a size 8 US...would resale shops have things in my size? Any advice that can point me in the right direction is greatly appreciated!

breakfast in Paris?

My girlfriend and I are travelling from London to Paris with a very early 5.25 train. We will arrive in Paris around 8, and I'm sure we would appreciate going straight to a very nice cafe or similar from a nice, long breakfast. Can you recommend such a place? We like sweet and savoury things, but prefer baguette, croissants and jams type of place. We're looking for something a bit more upmarket than normal cafes, but nothing which would cost more than 15 euros per head... Thanks!

Who was the Ur-Paris?

Who was the Ur-Paris? Who were the Paris Hiltons of yesteryear? Whenever I find myself in conversation with people-who-think-they're-smarter-than-everyone, I know that I will soon be subjected to a rant about how we now live in the most facile of times, obsessed with celebrities like Paris Hilton. I'd like to hear arguments for the opposing view: that this is nothing new, that, throughout history, it has always been human nature to be interested in the lives of certain people... [more inside]
