Did you know this about Paris?

I was surfing along and came across these interesting facts that may interest other Fodrites. I'm proud to say that I have experienced walking down the norrowest street - Chat-qui-Peche, and stood at the highest point on Rue de Telegraphe! Now to explore the rest.............
The longest street: Rue de Vaugirard (6th and 15th arrondissements): 4.36 km.
The shortest street: Rue Degrés (2nd arrondissement): 5.75 m.
The narrowest street: Rue du Chat-qui-Pêche (5th arrondissement): 1.80 m.
The broadest street: Avenue Foch (16th arrondissement): 120 m.
The steepest: Rue Gasnier-Guy (20th arrondissement): 17.4%.
Lowest point on a public street: 30.5 m (corner of the Rue Leblanc and Rue Saint-Charles, 15th arrondissement).
Highest point: 148.45 m (40, Rue du Télégraphe, 20th arrondissement).

I knew only one... Ave Foch. It is lined with chessnut trees. It was a random fact I picked up on my last trip when looking for WWII history (84 Avenue Foch).

I love trivia! Got more?
