History

Abbreviated to “Plaine-Monceau”, the neighbourhood name comes from one or more mounds existing there, at the place where it stands today. Situated on the road linking Paris to Asnières, the former hamlet was attached to Clichy parish. The village centre is located at Rue de Lévis. Under the old Regime, Plaine-de-Monceaux was an important hunting area until 1791. During the Second Empire, two landowners played a major role in the industrialisation and urbanisation of the neighbourhood: the Pereire brothers.
