Baka is a unique idyllic neighborhood with old Arab style houses, many of which have been upgraded and expanded. The neighborhood stretches out on both sides of Derech Beit Lechem. The Cahn Theater and the old train tracks separate Baka from the German Colony. The name "Baka" is taken directly from the Arabic word meaning "valley" as an indication of the topography of the area. Until the early 1900s, Baka was quiet and empty. In 1922 wealthy Muslim inhabitants and Christians established beautiful private houses in the area. With the War of Independence, the Arabs left the area and new immigrants from North Africa moved into the abandoned homes, During the 1970s the Israeli middle class began to settle in Baka. Many houses were renovated; however, the old architectural style was left intact. In the last decade, new immigrants from Europe and North America have bought large houses in the area, and French and English are commonly heard in the streets. Today the main street is Derech Beit Lechem, a street bustling with life, featuring designer stores, produce stands, restaurants and service stores. Over 10,000 Jerusalem residents currently make their home in this beautiful neighborhood of Old World style.
