And, no parked cars, pedestrian traffic, or billboards block Poissons views.The book is organized by neighborhood and includes easy-to-follow maps for walking tours. Each drawing is accompanied by informative text. All the major monuments are covered, along with many fascinating but less well-known structures that only a lifelong Parisian like Poisson would know.
