Lost in Paris

Look at this map of Paris
printed in the Dec. 24 issue of the New York Times.

The Champs-Elysées is shown in the wrong place (what is labeled as
“Champs-Elysées” is actually Avenue de Friedland/Boulevard Haussmann).
The Champs-Elysées is the avenue that links Place de l’Etoile to Place
de la Concorde.


Compare with this map:


or this one:


One can only wonder about the reason for this blunder by the New
York Times – perhaps trying to foil the discovery of the Holy Grail :)

Update (Dec. 30) The NYT web site has been updated with a corrected map showing the Champs-Elysées in the right place.
