Quartier des Epinettes - Paris 17


The neighbourhood was probably named after a grape variety of white pinot called ” épinette blanche”. Another hypothesis is that it took its name from the brambles that originally grew on its land. In any case, the first time this name was mentioned dated back to 1693. Before its annexation to Paris, Épinettes was a hamlet that prospered thanks to its agricultural and hunting development. In 1860, the village became part of Paris, forming the 17th arrondissement with Batignolles, Plaine Monceau and Ternes neighbourhoods. At that time, the city became industrialised and its working-class increased until 1999, while managers and intermediate professions percentage exceeded 50%.
