Walked through the market a few times late afternoon. Very pleasant. Noisy and busy. Usual traders ripping tourist off but generally worth a visit. Non threatening and full of mostly young people having a good time. Definitely visit if you are near.

This area is full of young people, having fun, singing, eating and just hanging out. So many eateries to go around. I've even seen tourists form a choir and start singing Hebrew songs! It's the in place to hang out with friends in Jerusalem Center.

Worth going at night (11pm at least) with a bunch of friends to see what the city is like at night. Lots of fun

If you have to walk down this street but its not as quaint as it used to be. I found it a little depressing actually.
