Champs-Elysées New Year’s Eve

By | January 3, 2009 | in Attractions

Avenue Champs-Elysées on New Year’s Eve looking with trees lit from Concorde all the way to the Arc de Triomphe.

Glass bottles of any type are now banned (“interdit“).  There’ll be packs of heavily armored police folks at all major Paris Metro stations along the Champs-Elysées searching bags.  People still manage to bring bottles on the avenue by simply walking from farther out stations.  This measure is to avoid mountains of broken glass along the street which presents a hazard to people who’ve been well “champagned”.

This photo was taken near station Champs-Elysées Clemenceau.
