Location and neighborhood
AGS housing is located in the upscale 16th arrondissement that is known for being a safe residential area with all the charm of the XIXth century ("pierre de taille" buildings and wraught iron railings from France's "belle époque"). Named after the poet Alfred de Musset, Rue de Musset, where the building is located, is a charming small and quiet Parisian street a few steps away from the busier tree-lined avenue de Versailles, which has all of the necessary supermarkets, bakeries, convenience stores, and restaurants for daily needs. A ten-minute walk away is also the rue d’Auteuil with many cheese shops, bakeries, butchers, delis, and the famous Marché d’Auteuil open-air farmers’ market that takes place twice a week.
For a jog, the Bois de Boulogne is located 10-15 minutes away from the building. It is one the largest two Parisian public parks, covering twice the surface of Central Park in NYC.
The housing is also situated a few blocks to the Seine River and the Pont du Garigliano bridge crossing over to the left bank with a beautiful perspective on the Eiffel tower.
