neuilly-sur-seine

exclusive residential northwestern suburb of Paris, France. It lies in Hauts-de-Seine departement, Ile-de-France region, west of the capital and north of the Bois de Boulogne. Its main thoroughfare is the wide avenue de Charles de Gaulle, which is a prolongation of the Champs-Elysees and of the avenue de la Grande Armee. The 18th-century Pont de Neuilly, which bridges the avenue over the Seine River at the suburb's western border, is regarded as an outstanding piece of engineering; it was rebuilt and widened to 115 feet (35 metres) in 1935-40. Apart from its residential function, Neuilly is also an important commercial district of the capital. Pop. (2004 est.) 61,100
