Jerusalem also attracted many Christians, including Conrad Schick, a German missionary who arrived in 1846. Schick was a self-taught architect, cartographer and archaeologist, and very well-respected by all faiths in Jerusalem. The mark he left on Jerusalem lasts until today, particularly in the buildings and neighborhoods he designed such as the Me'ah She'arim neighborhood and the Bikur Cholim and Sha'are Zedek hospitals. His own home still stands on Hanivi'im (Prophets) Street.
