The New American Consulate in Jerusalem
I haven't made it there yet, but when I was taking a walk with a friend in the Arnona neighborhood she pointed it out. Can you see the American Flag in the distance between the two trees?
The old one, near the former "seam" by the ceasefire lines between what had been in Israel's hands and Jordan, was a very unpleasant and decrepit place to go. The last time I was there it rained inside the courtyard where we had to wait.
