The Jerusalem YMCA exudes Old World charm. Its high-domed landmark bell tower thrusts out of a palatial white-limestone facade, full of carved arcane symbols and ancient scripts. For NIS 10 you can ride the small elevator to tiny balconies, with breathtaking views of the city in all directions. A bit of trivia: the building, dedicated in 1933, was designed by Arthur Loomis Harmon, one of the architects of New York City's Empire State Building.
