Let me introduce you to a very Parisian place: the Saint Michel Fountain. And it's not because it's a historical monument ordered by Haussmann to Gabriel Davioud in order to hide an ugly facade that it is famous... No, it's because it's probably the most common meeting point of the left bank. You'll often hear "let's meet at the Fontaine Saint-Michel at X o'clock" for instance. That is precisely why, all day long, this place is full of people waiting! I'm sure that most of my Parisian visitors will concur that they waited for someone at the Fountain Saint Michel at least once in their life!
