The Île de la Cité and next door Ile St Louis Islands are very pricey neighborhoods. Old family friends have a place on Quai de Bourbon since before WWII.
Think Hong Kong Victoria Peak square footage prices (100K US).

Edit: Just read it. Are you sure the Donald didn't write the article

"As owner and project manager, the French Ministry of Culture is responsible for regular maintenance, repairs and renovation of the building. Up unto this point all work was financed by the French State. But because of budgetary changes the State no longer wishes to assume the burden of financing desperately needed repairs. For this reason the Archbishop of Paris, in concert with the Diocese of Paris, have created the Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris."

So France owns it and the church is allowed to use it. I think I read somewhere the church pays for utilities etc.
Admission is free.
Commonplace in France.

After the Revolution, the new Republic was supposed to be completely free of religion. When you get married in France, for example, it's done at a Town Hall* or similar followed, if the couple wish, by a Church blessing.

* In Mirande in southwestern France where my parents lived for 25 years or so the local town hall is called 'Hotel des Idices" - locals call it "l'Hotel des IDIOTS" (the French and English words mean the same thing) so the French have about the same regard for their local governments as the rest of us

I totally agree, but would like to point out that so far the biggest individual donors have been FRENCH.

After Notre Dame fire, donations spike for torched black churches

A crowdfunding page for 3 historically black Louisiana churches devastated by arson exceeded its target of raising $1.8 million, after experiencing a spike in donations following Monday's Notre Dame fire.

Why it matters: Authorities have filed 3 charges of hate crimes and 3 of arson against a white man, Holden Matthews, 21, the son of a sheriff's deputy. The U.S. Attorney’s Office, ATF, and FBI are working with state and local law enforcement on the case. Matthews has pleaded not guilty but is being held in jail without bond.

The latest: Donations were soaring by the tens of thousands in the hours since prominent Americans donated after journalist Yashar Ali highlighted the churches' fundraiser in the wake of the Notre Dame appeal. By 5.30 a.m. ET Thursday, almost $1.9 million had been donated to the churches' GoFundMe page.

The big picture: All donations on the Seventh District Baptist Church Fires St Landry GoFundMe page will be distributed equally among the 3 churches "for not only rebuilding their sanctuaries, but for the purchase of all necessities lost in the fires, including pews, sound system, musical instruments," the page states.
