| ||If you happen to hang in dark corners of bars that still allow smoking, or in line at gourmet cheese shop counters, or in back of the few remaining couturier clothing shops in existence, you're likely to bump into more than a few Parisian expats. While they haven't necessarily etched out a turf of their own, like the Tokyo and Tel Aviv transplants on New York’s St. Marks Place or the Aussies in Alphabet City, the French have a connection to almost every scene and industry. It might be for that reason that we take for granted the red wine-stained bistros down the block, the constant presence of Godard at art house cinemas, and the messy, sexy, bed-headed girls in short skirts, cigarettes dangling from lips, in our discotheques.|
