Abstract

The Streets within a city are worlds which can be described by many indicators. Usually such environments are characterized by the physical elements which make up the "streetscape", by the density of houses or the number of storeys. At the same time streets are places which can be identified by their human culture and their interpersonal systems. The act of living on a street is a daily recurrence and a cumulative experience which can also be perceived as a "sense of place". This paper compares two streets in the Haifa area in terms of such sense of place, culture, and interpersonal systems. In Harishonim street, residents were found to identify strongly with their environment, as compared to the lack of involvement and belonging shown by the residents of Einstein street. The differences between the two streets are explained by analyzing several of the streets' attributes such as topography, types of buildings, landscape values and income level of their residents.
