Paris street to ‘shut out Instagrammers’

Instagrammers love the colorful homes in Paris’s Rue Cremieux. But residents of Rue Cremieux have now had enough and are calling on the city council to restrict access at certain times.

Residents have asked the city council to provide a gate that can be closed at peak times — evenings, weekends and at sunrise and sunset, when good light attracts people searching for a perfect Instagram picture. One resident told radio station France Info: “We sit down to eat and just outside we have people taking photos, rappers who take two hours to film a video right beneath the window, or bachelorette parties who scream for an hour. Frankly, it’s exhausting.”
