If "You" are Ever a Guest

This is the view of the main entry as you enter American Ambassador Rivkin's home in Paris. This mansion at 41 Rue de Faubourg-Saint Honore in the 8th Arrondissement (district) was built in 1855 by the French architect Louis Visconti for a baroness. It is a fine example of the architcture of Paris---absolutely elegant! (The United States purchased the residence in 1948.)
