*** Sidewalk Weekend! ***

Sidewalk Rating: Sticky

-->
The stone houses and the olive presses and the alleyways of the old city were demolished in the fifties. But, in that square kilometer of what was once Old Lydda, one still feels that something is very wrong. There is a curious ruin here, and unexplained ruin there. Amid the ugly slums, the shabby market, and the cheap stores, it is clear that there is still an unhealed wound. Unlike other cities where Israel’s modernity has overwhelmed old Palestine, here Palestine still makes itself felt.

-Ari Shavit, Lydda, 1948, from the New Yorker.


[Ruins of a building on Cedar Avenue, Minneapolis.]
