Sunday bridge : Pont de Bercy


The Pont de Bercy crosses the Seine river between 12th and 13th arrondissements. On the bridge stands a Viaduc on which runs the subway (you can see it on the picture).

Excellent, Laurent! «Louis» linked it to Linky.

«Louis» knows exactly where this bridge is - he went to L'école boulangerie et pâtisserie de Paris in Bercy. In front of the bridge, that's the Ministry of Finance, looking for all the world like something out of Star Wars. «Louis» always wondered if that building didn't levitate the wallets out of the drivers of the cars passing on the freeway below!

Ministry of Finance, eh? What an opposite style to the lovely and graceful bridge!

I've been on that metro crossing that bridge. But couldn't see what a graceful bridge it is. Until now that is.

Heureusement que le métro passe souvent ! J'ai du mal à me faire au ministère, j'y peux rien, je le trouve moche. Bon dimanche.

A lovely bridge for a subway.

How in the world did the city of Paris let that monstrosity be built right there on the Seine? Like the bridge though. I think it would be fun to Metro across it!

I sort of like that modern building. Isn't it a government office or something? Like the ministry of finance?

I walked across that bridge on the way to Gare Lyon.

Yes the big building is the Ministry of Economy and Finances. It's about 20 years old and personally I do not hate it. This part of Paris used to be industrial and I am in favor of modern architecture. Of course it may be less traditional Paris for visitors but for Parisian it's nice to have e living city and not a museum one. Look at London or Barcelona how they manage the old and new !
