Touring the Streets of Jerusalem - Together

Sunday, July 22, 2007

A Most Useful Street

Anyone traveling through Jerusalem lately can’t help but notice the train tracks and bus lanes that now crisscross through town. While (hopefully) adding some convenience for public transportation users, they tend to create a bit of challenge to get to certain streets for the rest of us traveling in cars.

One of the biggest challenges is getting from the Abu Tor / Derech Beit Lechem area to the Talbieh / Rechavia.

Once, one merely drove up Keren Hayesod and made a left to Talbieh at any number of corners. That option isn’t available anymore. If you get stuck on Keren HaYesod now, you end up having to go all the way up to Ramban Street before you can make a left.

The trick is a little street called Mapu (named after Avraham Mapu - father of the modern Hebrew novel).

Instead of bearing left on Keren HaYesod, bear right onto King David. After the King Solomon Hotel (on the corner with the Rosemary restaurant), make a left onto Mapu Street and cut straight across onto Jabotinsky.

This is the quickest way to get to Talbieh / Rechavia.
