Less Familiar Viewpoints in Haifa
But, this time, I decided to do something different. Instead of going to well-known places, I looked for new ones. So I sat down with Google maps and street view and started searching. After about an hour, I found two potential places.
Last Friday, I visited those places and will share the result with you.
The first place was at Ha-Galil Street 118, Haifa. You can see the industrial zone and the Check Post area from this viewpoint. Here are several photos from there:
Yad LaBanim Road
The second viewpoint was: Yad LaBanim Road 97, Haifa.

I wanted to try Yad LaBanim Road because it is on the mountain’s edge, allowing us to see both the downtown and the industrial zone.
This is not a viewpoint but a part of the street. I walked from Yad LaBanim Road 97 to Yad LaBanim Road 210 to get the following photos:
As you can see, it can be pretty frustrating since, in most places, the view is behind the buildings.
So sometimes you can get a peek of what is in between, like I did in this shot of Haifa port:
And sometimes, you can incorporate the buildings as a foreground element:
Here are several additional photos from that section of the street:
