Tourcoing can not be called a very fun place. It is one of the three largest cities in the Lille Metropole area. Also an ancient industrial city which the textile crisis had put into a deep sleep. Now the old buildings and houses seem almost abandoned. The inhabitants and the city can’t afford to renovate them nor to maintain in a good state. So many of the constructions are aging in a general disregard though some native « bourgeois » of the city or young rich couples buy them to live in very luxurious houses for a very cheap price. But overall Tourcoing has lost its glory and really needs an economic rebirth which seems still to be far away.
