In context : At the hills of eastern Paris : Belleville and Buttes-Chaumont
(From : 40, Du Télégraphe Street). Here we suggest another detour : follow du Télégraphe street until du Borrégo street, which you'll take to the left, then go around Notre-Dame-des-Otages church and turn right into Haxo street. Follow it up to Saint-Fargeau subway station. On the way, have a look at the painted trompe-l'œil wall of the fire station. Then take Saint-Fargeau street and de Ménilmontant street in the continuity. Finally, turn right into des Pyrénées street and you'll find the Cité Leroy on your left.
A private dead-end, the Cité Leroy forms, along with the Villa and Cité de L'Ermitage, a small urban village made of quiet little and sometimes paved streets, pretty low-level houses, each with a garden or a courtyard, and lots of flowers and trees.
The different lots have the typical XIXth century set-up that is common in the 20th district. They're residential, but the Cité de l'Ermitage also has a few offices and a theater.
The Cité Leroy houses a shared garden called "Leroy Sème".
