BEHIND EVERY GREAT INNOVATION… THERE'S PROBABLY ANOTHER INVENTOR WHO GOT THERE FIRST
The Internet Age, where the rush to cover the news first means that even respectable journalistic outlets publish without fact checking, let alone spell checking, cajoles you to appreciate the wisdom of the Old Grey Lady (not Paris, but the other Old Grey Lady, The New York Times), which used to assure its name in the pantheon of correctness by being the second to publish the story, letting others make their journalistic mistakes first. Edwin Diamant nicely chronicles this in his definitive tome on planned laggardliness, Behind the Times. And actually, when you think about it, second often comes first to mind -- there would have been no Edison without Tesla, Strayhorn's genius lionized Ellington, and even Fulton's steam engine had its precursor in the seemingly pre-cursed work of Claude-François-Dorothée, aka the Marquis Jouffroy D'Albans.
The poor Marquis. First of all, he was a two-bit royal, not seriously monied and thus bearing a chip on his shoulder, rather than a scepter in his hand. Banished to Provence – quelle horreur! – for a dueling infraction, he picked himself up by his fencing bootstraps and went to engineering school. Even so, he was denied the attention and respect befitting a member of the gentry (no, we're not talking about the guillotine). A persistent inventor, he kept after his dream of creating a paddle-driven steamboat and, after several failed attempts, succeeded in 1783 with a boat he called the Pyroscaphe – the first truly functional steamboat. Denied a patent, Jouffroy d'Abbans went into a tailspin for a few years, during which time the American Robert Fulton invented a successful steamboat. Moral of the story: it's easier to say "Fulton's folly" than "Jouffroy d'Abbans' Pyroscaphe." Fulton was immortalized in one of Ira Gershwin's great lines,--"They all laughed at Fulton and his steamboat/Hershey and his chocolate bar"), rendered by the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald… meanwhile, the Marquis died a bitter and forgotten man. Proof positive that second can sometimes be first.
But we know that Paris is one place where luck sometimes favors the otherwise unfortunate, so despite Jouffroy d'Abbans's lifetime of obscurity, he did get a pretty sizeable street named after him in Paris – the very same street that houses this elegant and quiet apartment. So perhaps he got the last laugh, after all.
Stay here and you'll be in the real Parisians' Paris. Walk a few blocks and you can enjoy the verdant and multipurpose Parc Monceau, always a great spot for people watching if you aren't quite feeling up to jogging yourself. Two museums line the park, one a splendid home for Asiatic art called the Musée Cermuschi, the other an equally elegant museum of French decorative arts called the Musée Nissim de Camondo. There are stories galore about the gentility that gave rise to these places, but we'll save those for another time – or you could look them up in HFR's Parc Monceau blurb.
You'll enjoy a peaceful and lovely stay in this classic and genteel spot.
This spacious one-bedroom, located on the 3rd floor and reachable by elevator, will instantly charm you with its classic generous proportions and traditional elegant French décor. You can come with your honey and even offer a pullout couch to a lucky guest, or a couple of them, for a few days. There's room to spare. And it's courtyard facing, so the quiet is remarkable in comparison with le bruit down on the street.
Along with a beautifully appointed double bed, there's a fireplace in the bedroom. The salon features a cozy pullout couch and comfy chairs. The granite-countered kitchen is a perfect place to prepare your morning café and croissant, and you may even be tempted to drink your morning warmup from a bowl, French style.
The bath features a luxuriously deep and thermal clawfooted tub and traditional sleek tiling.
You'll feel safe and sound, and in the lap of comfort, in this lovely place.
