The top end of Collins St, aka the ‘Paris End’, is lined with plane trees, grand buildings and luxe boutiques (hence its moniker). You'll find ornate arcades leading off from Collins St. The Block network, comprising Block Pl, Block Arcade and Block Ct, was named after the 19th-century pastime of ‘doing the block’, which referred to walking the city’s fashionable area.
