Bondy (French pronunciation: ​) is a commune in the northeastern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 10.9 km (6.8 mi) from the Kilometre Zero of Paris.

Name

The name Bondy was recorded for the first time around AD 600 as Bonitiacum, meaning "estate of Bonitius", a Gallo-Roman landowner.

History

During the Middle Ages Bondy was primarily forest. The forest of Bondy was a well-known haunt of bandits and robbers and was extremely dangerous.

On 3 January 1905, a third of the territory of Bondy was detached and became the commune of Les Pavillons-sous-Bois.

On 30 October 2007, a gas explosion killed one person and injured 47 people.

Bondy and its integration into Paris is the subject of part of the second-last chapter of Graham Robb's book Parisians.
