A teenage boy in a hoodie and jeans throws himself across the ice like a colt, revelling in the ease of his passage through space. A middle aged man comes next, cautious on tip toe and then a wave of girls with big pom poms on their beanies follow. Here at Place de l’Hôtel de Ville, the old and the new Paris show off together.
