In her text about Le Havre, Coup d’œil sur l’état présent et ancien du Havre, Enlightenment writer Marie Le Masson Le Golft (1749-1826) uses the former name of Paris Street, “Saint-Michel Street”, which was part of the Notre-Dame area.

Paris Street in mentioned in several writings from the 19th century, including travel stories, for instance by Stendhal (1783-1842) and Gérard de Nerval (1808-1855). It also appears in the first picturesque travel guides published in the Romantic era, including the guide written by Charles Nodier (1780-1844) and Abel Hugo (1798-1855). They all stress the beauty of the street.

In Nausea, by Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980), Tournebride Street is reminiscent of Paris Street.

In the middle of the street, the Charles de Gaulle square, formerly called Gambetta Square, offers several viewpoints of Paris Street.

Paris Street is the main setting for the film 38 Witnesses by Lucas Belvaux (2012)
