  1. Why is there no Italian Quarter in NY, or Turkish Quarter in Berlin, or Muslim Quarter in Paris? There are enough Koreans to have a Korean Quarter in Tokyo, and a Chinese Quarter in Moskow, and yet, only Yerushalim has been "quartered"


  2. B"H

    I can only speak about the division of the Old City: There is an Armenian, Jewish, Christian and Muslim Quarter. The rest of the city is divided into West and East Jerusalem.
