U.S. French Tourist Office Makes a Move

On July 30, the U.S. headquarters of Maison de la France/the French Government Tourist Office is relocating to different New York offices. The new location, the 29th floor of 825 Third Avenue, is just a few blocks east of the organization's current location. All administrative telephone numbers, direct lines, consumer and travel agent hotlines, web site and e-mail addresses will remain the same, but it is worth noting that the public information desk will be closed for one week, beginning Monday, July 30 through Friday, August 3, for the move.
