The 19th arrondissement includes two public parks: the Parc des Buttes Chaumont, located on a hill, and the Parc de la Villette, which is home to both the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie, a museum and exhibition centre, and the Conservatoire de Paris, one of the most renowned music schools in Europe and part of the Cité de la Musique.
The land area of the arrondissement is 6.786 km2 (2.62 sq. miles).
The population of the 19th arrondissement is still increasing. At the last census, in 1999, the population was 172,730 inhabitants. As of the same census, 68,101 people worked in the arrondissement.

15th Arrondissement Reviews
Nice part of Paris. Very much a residential area with fine delis and street side cafes. Much quieter than other more touristy areas. more »
Loved the 15th - great apartments here, plenty of restaurants and shopping, easy access to Metro and some great history in the area. We will be back for sure... more »
