Google Maps Jerusalem

Google cars were in Jerusalem in November 2011,

"picture Google car", "photo Google car Jerusalem", "image Google car"

   they were easy to recognize going up and down the streets.

Now Google Street Views of Israel are going on-line

and everyone can find their favorite Jerusalem street.

"sign for Yizkor, "poster remembrance day"

You will still see signs for Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day.

However,

"Israeli flags photo", "picture Israel flags", "image Israel Flag"

 this time of year you will see Israeli flags lining the streets,

"picture Israeli flags", "photo Israel flags"

hanging in store windows,

"photo Jerusalem street","picture Heichel Sholmo", "Image Israel flag"

and flying along many major roads.

"photo sign Yom Haatzmaut", "photo Israel Independence Day", "image Jerusalem"

The signs are out, Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israeli Independence Day, is next week.

What a perfect time for Google to show the Jerusalem streets

turning blue & white for Israel’s 64th birthday celebrations!

I wrote about a special Yom Hashoah event for The Times of Israel,

please check it out and comment.

    Marvelous…I should do some exploring all the way from California!

    I remember Yom Ha’atzmaut in 1995 when I was in Jerusalem…parties in the street all night. Do Jerusalemites still celebrate with dancing in the streets to live bands, plastic hammers and canned string??

      Yom Ha’atzmaut is a major celebration, now there is less canned string, the plastic hammers are bigger and softer, and the mangals, (picnic BBQs) have smoke rising on every open space, hope to get lots of photos on Thursday, so check back next week.

    Had a good time finding (and seeing) the street where we stayed this past Winter on Google street view!

    I was just talking about how I don’t know one person who actually saw a google street view car. I started thinking maybe it happened by magic. 🙂

      They also had special smaller vehicles to get Mamilla Mall and the many small paths that are called streets in Jerusalem.

          The Israel Museum does cover a large area in the center of Jerusalem.
          I got stopped from taking a photo of the flag flying over the US consulate,
          wonder how they like this?
