X marks this spot and it never erodes! The first time you spot this 'X' on the wall you’ll notice them popping up over the city. It’s an 'X's that mark the spot but also there’s 'O's too, making a game of O-X-O or tic-tac-toe. At this particular spot I really see the 'X' as having a harmoniously link with the design of the steel balcony. A sympathetic design feature in-keeping with the architecture, in-tune with the concrete landscape as if intended as part of the architects original plan. The artist is De ZeeR's Tic Tac Toe whose designs feature in the Agnes B. boutique near Saint-Eustache.
In the historic location of Les Halles on the popular pedestrian street rue Montorgueil lies Marché Saint-Eustache-Les-Halles (a mouthful, I know)! The market is not so big (there's usually around 20ish stalls) and it is only open on Thursday's and Sunday's. Like other markets there's a selection of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, wine sellers, French cheese, butchers etc... Even if you're not here for the food, it is worth coming for the location and taking a stroll around, or sitting down at a cafe and people watching.
