    Paris looks skyward for housing
    PARIS, France (Reuters) -- In a move some fear will ruin the skyline of a city which prides itself on its beauty, Paris City Hall says it may
    turn to skyscrapers to solve the French capital's chronic housing shortage. A 30-year-old ban on high-rise
    construction has left Paris with a city center that is strikingly uncluttered compared to those of New York or
    London, where historic monuments jostle for space with modern tower blocks. But with more people reported
    sleeping on the streets of Paris because of huge waiting lists for social housing, Socialist mayor Bertrand
    Delanoe is under pressure to meet an election promise of providing 50,000 new homes.
