Title in french : Rue de l'Arc, végétalisée, taguée, rénovée
Type : district
City : MarseilleRue de l'Arc is a wide alley located in the popular neighborhood of Noailles which has gradually seen its sidewalks and its windows full of plants, becoming the emblem of a Marseille green dynamic, an exemple for other streets in the center.
I must say that for a long time, the residents of this street have not been spoiled by the local autorities. The state of unhealthiness of the neighborhood was so important that we wonder if it was not a deliberate maneuver to dislodge the current populations before to make business with the buildings.
Rue de l'Arc was then quite uninviting, just a few adventurers dare to advance to the night bars or the Caribbean shops.
The people have reacted in their own way, gently. And what better that a little green to make the life slightest?
It seems that the circle was virtuous, because in 2013, the street was finally restored, encouraging residents to put more and more plants.
Today, between tags and green plants, the street does not lack of interest. Especially if you lift your eyes a little!http://plusbellelarue.org
