About the project
Jim Angleton Corner is a small observation point overlooking the Old City near Confederation House in Yemin Moshe. The corner was created in memory of James (Jim) Angleton, Chief of Counterintelligence of the US Central Intelligence Agency in the 1950s. The park is located in a spot Angleton visited and admired in the early 1960s, when it bordered on the barbed wire fence that divided the city. The project was initiated by then-Mayor Teddy Kollek, Defense Minister Yizhak Rabin and Shin Bet (then General Security Services) Head Amos Manor. It is one of four small memorial gardens created by the Jerusalem Foundation in the vicinity of the Confederation House.
