Hemingway's Apartment

Ah, here it is: 74 Rue de Cardinale Lemoine.

Scoured the text of A Moveable Feast and couldn't quickly find it but should've known it's easily Googled.

The Hemingways' apartment was on the third floor. In 1999, when Michael Palin visited for his travel series, Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure, the apartment was for sale for 1 million francs or $180,000.

Looks like I missed my chance.

Anyway, move around in the above embedded street view and enjoy the neighborhood. Hemingway portrays it in a more romantic, grubby light but it looks charming now.
