TRAVEL with pat and lew

* “PAT + LEW 9/8/84″ on the Pont de l’Archeveche

Posted by Lew Weinstein on August 29, 2010


The Pont de l’Archeveche connects the Isle de Cite with the Left Bank, affording one of the best views of Notre Dame. The fence is wrought iron filled with cyclone fencing. On the cyclone fence are hundreds and hundreds of locks, many of which are inscribed to proclaim the love of the couple who placed it there.

Pat and I bought our lock at BHV (Bazar de l’Hotel de Ville). When we asked where we could have the lock engraved, we were immediately directed to a shop along the rue de Tempe side of BHV. We were not the first to make that request. So now

PAT + LEW  9/8/84

has made its appearance on the Pont de l’Archeveche, 13 panels from the Left Bank, 22 panels from the other end, a testament to our love of each other and of Paris. Visit us when the next time you’re in the world’s most beautiful city.
