Putting your menorah outside on your doorpost (literally) is the custom in Jerusalem and many other cities in Israel, for which you need a menorah in a box...

Just so love those pics, esp the first one.

[i thought men walk on one side and women on the other? on second look, don't see any women? :-) ]

Right in the front middle, by the curb is a man and woman couple. The woman is wearing a black head covering.

You've been listening to BS, misinterpretations and generalizations. This is the WIDE part of Meah Shearim. During Chol HaMoed Succot, in the NARROW part, when tens of thousands of visitors come to join the Simchas Beis HaShoeva celebrations - THEN they segregate the streets. One week during the whole year. And it makes sense, as a religious man I don't want to be rubbing through a mixed crowd.
