The City Hall and the Place de Greve, the current Place City Hall, current 4th district. Urban landscape. On the left, the quay Pelletier, built in 1675, overlooks the strike which gave its name instead. Behind City Hall, still surrounded by "houses with pillars," we see the towers of the Saint-Jean-en-Greve.

The Greve was until the Second Empire from a neighboring area of ​​a quarter of the current site. It was divided into two unequal portions by a pile row separating the lower part sloping towards the port, of the upper part, the place itself. The port strike was, in fact, a suite of specific ports aligned along the right bank of the Seine from the street of bars up the street Lavandières-Sainte-Opportune: marina hay, wine, wheat , grain, wood, coal, salt, many mills the separated water. The Church Saint-Jean-en-Greve disappeared following the successive enlargements of the City Hall in 1803 and, from 1837 to 1841. (See J. Hillairet, History of Paris streets, Volume I, p.648-650).
