The center of the city was also a cradle of discontent and revolution; between 1830 and 1848, seven armed uprisings and revolts had broken out in the centre of Paris, particularly along the , around the Hôtel de Ville, and around Montagne Sainte-Geneviève on the left bank.
The quantity of water was insufficient for the fast-growing city, and, since the sewers also emptied into the Seine near the intakes for drinking water, it was also notoriously unhealthy.

Before Haussmann, most buildings in Paris were made of brick or wood and covered with plaster. While he was rebuilding the boulevards of Paris, Haussmann simultaneously rebuilt the dense labyrinth of pipes, sewers and tunnels under the streets which provided Parisians with basic services. Two new streets were also built, the boulevard du Palais and the rue de Lutèce.
And infrastructure was put in place for the coming industrial revolution. To create adequate traffic circulation, old streets were widened and new ones cut, while the great railway stations were placed in a circle outside the old city and provided with broad approaches. Long, straight boulevards for parades and for the circulation of traffic could also foil would-be rioters, since the mob could not defend boulevards as readily as barricaded slum alleyways. Sometimes the staff often had their own stairwell on the yard side, which gave a direct access to the kitchen. Il fait ses études au à Paris, puis il entame un cursus de droit tout en étant élève au.

Nicolas du Chardonnet, one of the narrow Medieval streets near the Pantheon on the Left Bank, in the 1850s In the middle of the nineteenth century, the center of Paris was viewed as overcrowded, dark, dangerous, and unhealthy. At the end of the 1830s, the population of Paris had doubled since 1815, with no increase in its area. The post as emperor enabled him to ignore any resistance, but still he had to find a man capable of implementing a project of such magnitude.
The residents of these neighborhoods had taken up paving stones and blocked the narrow streets with barricades, and had to be dislodged by the army. But the capital of France—Gertrude Stein's unofficial hometown, Ernest Hemingway's moveable feast, the backdrop to Carrie Bradshaw's long-awaited happy ending—first went through a gut renovation at the hands of Georges-Eugène Haussmann to become the City of Light. But even more, Haussmann created a city that inspired — an uplifting city; a city with a soul. By transforming city streets into spaces for leisure and consumption, sidewalks fundamentally changed the way we experience urban life. Thousands of families and businesses had to relocate when their buildings were demolished for the construction of the new boulevards.
