West Jerusalem Pocket Garden


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This neat little garden was put together on an out of the way bit of urban dead space as a part of a private-civic initiative on Rechov Brodie, which is not really a street, but rather a little pedestrian walk. Rechov Brodie connects a little section of upper Katamon down to Rechov Hertzog, where I’ve been catching the #19 bus to Mount Scopus for the World Union of Jewish Studies Congress. The place has the look of being looked after and much loved. It sits there, pleasantly, alongside the walk, pretty and green and very quiet. There’s a lot of “garden city” design in West Jerusalem, that makes the place habitable.
