Opened in 1839, the Puteaux crossing was built near the future Saint Lazare station, which was supposed to be built at Tronchet Street. It is the work of Louis Puteaux who builds several buildings there. It is the shortest passage in Paris. Its decoration is simple but neat, with pilasters delimiting six bays. Under the simple glass roof with two slopes, there are still some moldings and capitals chipped. It houses a bistro-cellar with a terrace.
