We arrived after the Sabbat and the street was lit up with stores and restaurants. We were able to get some souvenirs and go to a few nightlife spots. There was a choir singing songs. Felt very safe and a fun street to experience Jerusalem

A nice pedestrian area, but nothing more. The most of the shops sell Jewish tradional stuff. You need to burgain a lot.
