On the Distinction between the flaneur and the boulevardier
1.) A boulevardier drinks in the fashionable atmospheres; a flaneur drifts like a ghost through fashionable spaces, which are less remarkable to him than emptied factories.
2.) A flaneur takes pictures in the mind of landfills; a boulevardier takes pictures of tourist attractions.
3.) A flaneur is a seer; a boulevardier is a sightseer.
4.) A boulevardier strolls down prescribed paths; a flaneur is a mapless wanderer.
5.) A boulevardier walks to be seen; a flaneur walks to see.
