are part of the 16th arrondissement
. They are located near the suburb Neuilly-sur-Seine
This area is commonly known as one of the richest in Paris, with calm, select and very expensive neighbourhoods, including many mansions. Auteuil-Neuilly-Passy is sometimes abbreviated as NAP.
The borough of Auteiul, once home to Victor Hugo and Molière and the birthplace of Marcel Proust, was incorporated into the city of Paris in 1859-60 by the Law of 16 June 1859. A hamlet built between the thirteenth and seventeenth centuries, it became a fashionable country retreat for French elites during the reign of Louis XV.
The satiric group Les Inconnus made in 1991 a song called "Auteuil, Neuilly, Passy (rap BCBG)".
