Pique-niquer in Paris

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

An old tradition renews the relationship existing between Paris and her inhabitants: the social and public use of lawns, gardens, stairways and riverfronts to hold, with extreme nonchalance, the ceremony of picnicking. Pique-niquer (to picnic), is a French verb made up of two words: piquer (to pick, to nick, to nibble) and nique (small little thing seemingly of no value). The City has generously dedicated many public areas to picnicking.
