Moissy-Cramayel is one of the satellite towns of Paris, being separated from the urban area of Paris by some agricultural land. However, with the rapid growth of the area of Sénart, of which Moissy-Cramayel is a central component, it is expected that in the near future Moissy-Cramayel, like the other communes of Sénart, will become physically linked to the urban area of Paris.

Its inhabitants are called Moisséens.

HistoryEdit

During the French Revolution, Moissy-Cramayel was temporarily renamed Moissy-la-Plaine, meaning "Moissy the Plain".

TransportationEdit

Moissy-Cramayel is served by Lieusaint – Moissy station on Paris RER line  .
