The street, known for its picturesque houses, has become too popular on the social network.

Residents of Cremieux Street (Rue Crémieux) in Paris demanded that the authorities fence it off on both sides. So the Parisians want to get rid of Instagram users, for whom the street has become a popular shooting location.

In a conversation with the City Lab publication, residents said that their small, picturesque street was constantly crowded with tourists in the evenings and on weekends when everyone was relaxing. According to them, tourists do not just come to admire the street, but also very noisy.

We just sit down to eat, and people outside are constantly taking pictures of something: rappers who need two hours to record a clip right in front of the window or hen parties where they scream for an hour. Honestly, it is tiring.

Judging by the Club Crémieux account , large-scale flash mobs, wedding parties are held on Crémieux Street, and some tourists are shooting in a yoga pose right at the door of private houses. Users also bring props for shooting from sunglasses to underwear.

Residents of Cremier Street gave the city authorities time until the summer of 2019 to find a working solution to the problem. They demanded to install a gate from both ends of the street, and to let everyone in only on weekdays and during working hours.

In August 2018, a similar incident occurred in Canada. Bogle Seeds Sunflower Farm has become a popular photospot and it has been closed for visits due to the influx of Instagram users.
