Bourgeois[edit]

Bourgeois does not mean "upscale." It is French for "middle-class." C'mon, folks, this is basic French 101. I recommend changing the wording of the second ¶ to something more like, "...a compendium of upscale "bourgeois" neighbourhoods..." with "bourgeois" remaining linked to the Wikipedia page for that word (albeit a page concentrating on the prejudicial marxist use of the term as an epithet).

  • Words like "bourgeois" and "upscale" are painfully subjective and shouldn't be used in an encyclopedic description of a geographic place. As well, the grammatically-incorrect "Neuilly is often considered as the richest city in France" is crying out for a reference. I'd be happy to do a re-write, and welcome discussion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.231.128.184 (talk) 23:09, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
