The arrondissements of Paris, with the river
Seine bisecting the city.
Rive Droite is the northern part.
Rive Droite (French pronunciation: [la ʁiv dʁwat], The
Right Bank) is most commonly associated with the river
central Paris. Here the river flows roughly westwards, cutting the
city into two: when facing downstream, the northern bank is to the
right, and the southern bank (or Rive Gauche) is to the left.
Owing to its association with places such as Place Vendôme, the Right
Bank can now be used to refer to a level of elegance and
sophistication not found in the more bohemian Left Bank. The Right
Bank's most famous street is the Champs-Élysées, but there are
others of prominence, such as Rue de la Paix,
Rue de Rivoli
Rue de Rivoli and Avenue
On 28 October 1993 Hungarian cult underground artist Simone Letriech
released a series of short musical vignettes themed around the
locality, entitled Right Bank Hank. Some of this work has subsequently
been shared on various social media channels.
