If Neuilly-sur-Seine does not strictly speaking have a town centre, Rue des Huissiers and its surroundings play the role of a town centre.

To the north, Avenue Achille-Peretti is also a major axis, while the town hall, located two streets away, proves its central position.

History

The area around Rue des Huissiers remained uncultivated for a long time and was mainly used for the military reviews organised by the monarchy or as a laundry drying space. The layout of the current Avenue Charles-de-Gaulle contributed to the neighbourhood prosperity between the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century. The number of houses between Rue des Huissiers and Porte Maillot increased from two to 130 in 40 years. Near Saint-Jean-Baptiste Church, an annual fair was set up, which reinforced the neighbourhood attractiveness, now central between Paris and La Défense.

Cultural sites

  • Saint-Pierre Church: built in 1897, it bears witness to the neighbourhood’s population growth in the 19th century, in industrial era peak. A rich industrialist widow gave the land on which it stands. Despite its size, it is characterised by its non-completion: the exterior sculptures were never completed.
  • Saint-Jean-Baptiste Church: the first church was built in 1570 and was regularly considered too small, but was demolished and rebuilt several times. The present building is sober and follows a basilical plan. The clock that it carries on its pediment comes from the Château de Bagatelle.

The town hall shows a neo-Renaissance style very typical of the 3rd Republic. Its interior decoration was carried out by local artists.
