Can you help with a web-site?

I know someone here has talked about a web-site that you put in an addy in Paris and it will show you the neighbourhood. I can't find it...Any help would be good.

I am looking to find out info on '63 Avenue de la Bourdonnais,
75007 Paris'

Thanks

under "ou?" Localitie is Paris 7, type the address in the addresse slot, then
put IDF in the departement area.
Click Rechercher. Click on Photo under what comes next. Another cool feature is ability to look across the street, etc, by clicking on arrows.

sorry if that's unclear. "IDF" for Ile de France goes in Localite area.

Don't screw around with the main page. Go directly to http://photos.pagesjaunes.fr and type the street number and name in the blank.

Photobear, I just tried that link and it worked fine for me so maybe a glitch on your end. Keep trying.

Who is your ISP? It sounds like their DNS isn't working as intended.

Hmmm. Maybe they're anglophones with an attitude about French web sites? Can you see http://www.pagesjaunes.fr?

That's really weird. Try purging your cache. If your browser cached an obsolete IP address, you might get the "no server" symptom.

By the way - what browsers have you tried?

Thanks, I purged my cache and still no luck. I'm using IE. What's really weird is that I've used that site b4.

Mine works OK. I note that the site requires "Flash" player. Have you downloaded this onto your computer? If so try downloading Updates for the program. You can see the link on the bottom left hand side of the - http://photos.pagesjaunes.fr - page.

Hi

You can also type in an address in Google maps and get this shown on the map: http://www.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=wl&q=

Here is a link to my Paris trip report with links, pictures and a Google map that shows where the attractions are located: http://gardkarlsen.com/Paris_France.htm
