The geography of Paris in 1897

Maybe someone with a good knowledge of Paris in 1897 can help me.
I need a quarter that was very poor in 1897, within walking distance of the Seine, and hopefully not too far away from the Latin Quarter (wherever that was). I don't speak a word of French, which makes research very cumbersome.

My POV character just witnessed a murder near the embankment of the Seine, and ran off. Now she finds herself in a very unsafe, poverty-stricken area. (At least that's the plan.)
Speaking of the Seine, was there a place at the Seine's embankment (or maybe a bridge?) that was particularly "popular" for suicides?

Thank you in advance.
