Where's the coolest place you could imagine living? For a lot of people, it'd be Paris, the city of lights. It's gorgeous, romantic, and filled with history. Also it's got that sick architectural masterpiece, the Eiffel Tower, in the middle of it. Well, what if we told you that at one point, someone actually lived in the Tower, looking down over all of Paris, in one of the most envied apartments in the world?
It's true! At the top of the Eiffel Tower is a secret apartment, only ever lived in by one person: the man who created the Eiffel Tower, Gustave Eiffel. He had a small apartment up there that people basically offered their souls for, but no matter how much wealth or power the person wielded, Gustave turned them down. If you built your own home a thousand feet higher than everybody built theirs, you wouldn't give it up either.
That's not to say he was a miser with the space — he frequently hosted others there, including other famous geniuses, like Thomas Edison. You still can't rent it, but nowadays you can at least visit the apartment, making you ten thousand times cooler and luckier than a bunch of rich, dead French people. Congrats!
