Notes on the Geography of Jerusalem: West Jerusalem: European: Photo 1

world pictures Jerusalem: West Jerusalem: European




In the 19th century Jerusalem began expanding outside the Old City walls. Nearly all the growth lay to the west, particularly along Jaffa Road, which remains a major commercial axis. There's a big Orthodox community nearby; other and very different people come for the nightlife, which with many outdoor restaurants is lively, at least by Jerusalem standards. The crowds are so intense that it's easy to overlook the physically rundown character of most of the buildings. There's been a lot of new construction, but the older buildings have been through a lot, from barbed wire barricades during the British Mandate to bombings in more recent years.
