Maniere is on the right.

96. The little house on place Dalida. This is from Maigret in Montmarte.

Hotel Alsinia in Maigret and the Surly Inspector. It's
kitty-corner to the place Constantin-Pecquer.

99. The arrow points to the Lamarck-Caulaincourt Metro station.

100. The steps at the Lamarck-Caulaincourt station. Number 95
rue Caulaincourt is on the right at the top. Although it's not
visible, there's a small sign at the top of the stairs pointing
to the station. It's also not visible from number 67.

101. 66 bis rue Lamarck. Michel Goldfinger, the victim, lived
here with his wife and sister-in-law.

102. Corner of rue Caulaincourt and rue Joseph de Maistre. No
butcher there today. In Maigret Sets a Trap, the murderer's
mother lived here. The sixth and last murder in this story took
place just to the right in the rue Joseph de Maistre.

103. The corner of blvd Voltaire (behind) and blvd Richard Lenoir.

104. Blvd Voltaire, near where Dr. Pardon lived.

105. Rue Popincourt. At the traffic light is the rue du Chemin Vert. The sign for Franprix
supermarket can be seen on the right. Just past this sign is Mme. Maigret's grocer on the
corner of the rue du Chemin Vert. Dr. Pardon also lived on this street in some stories. It
was featured in Maigret and the Killer.

106. Rue du Chemin Vert looking towards blvd Richard Lenoir.

107. 55 rue Rochechouart, the Hotel-Restaurant Carlton's. This
street also got a lot of mentions, but not as many as rue
Caulaincourt. Also, no address was used more than once.

three places given for Chez Léon.

112. The Bar Regence was said to be at the very top of the rue Caulaincourt in Maigret and
the Lazy Burglar
. There's a bar on both sides here, so you can choose. This is the corner of
the rue Caulaincourt and rue Mont-Cenis. The steps are part of rue Mont-Cenis. At this
intersection the rue Caulaincourt comes to an end but the street continues as the rue
Custine. Rue Mont-Cenis does not change its name at this point.

113. 39, ave F. D. Roosevelt, the place of Gastinne-Renette. He
was a gun dealer and often served as the ballistics expert for
the PJ. This doesn't fit anything in this story but I included
it as his name was mentioned many times.

114. The Hippopotamus restaurant on the place de la Bastille. It's a part of a chain to be
found all over Paris. The one now on the place des Ternes was once known as the Café Moka was
one of Simenon's favorite hangouts when he first arrived in Paris.
