A couple of things

First of all, is it true that YU is really thinking of closing down Stern College? It's neither Rosh Chodesh Adar nor April 1st.

Now for something lots more pleasant. I finally, and easily!, got the pictures up which weren't cooperating last night. This time I did them one by one and am feeling better, B"H.

Here are the graffiti walls. The pictures look too good to be just spontaneous, but being a total no-talent in that department means I admire most people's painting, since mine is worse.
Facing those paintings are the bullet holes from the Israeli War of Independence and Jordanian shooting until Israel's victory in 1967. The large, impressive Jerusalem Municipality complex is just behind this building. Actually, I think that it also uses the building.

Here's the very popular Village Green Restaurant. It has the only salad bar I trust. Most make me nauseous and worse. The woman in green at the cash register is the owner, or at least has always run it. When I used to work for "The Bagel House," "Beit Habeigel," we used to meet in some hitech frims in Har Chotzvim as she delivered and I sold, but that's another story.
