Tel Aviv Neighborhoods
Tel aviv Neighborhoods
Tel Aviv is divided into nine districts that have formed naturally over time, which are made up of over fifty neighborhoods. Among these fifty are some particularly distinctive ones that are really worth visiting.
The Florentine neighborhood is located on the southern side of Tel Aviv and is a gentrified neighborhood that works hard at day and parties even harder at night; it's a bustling industrial area in the daytime and at nighttime the countless bars and restaurants make for a lively, young experience.
Neve tzedek is located south of the Yemenite Quarter and was the first Jewish neighborhood built outside of Jaffa. This once slummy area is now positively charming and full of character with top-end food, fashion, jewelry, ceramics and much more. The neighborhood is one of the most beautiful in Tel Aviv and the quaint streets are a pleasure to peruse.
Kerem HaTemanim (translates as "Vineyard of the Yemenites") is a central neighborhood in Tel Aviv and was built by Yemenite pioneers. Home to some famous eateries, such as "Zion" and "Medina", this sweet neighborhood, with it's narrow alleyways and small houses, makes for a lovely walk.
The Ajami neighborhood is located south of Old jaffa and a large Arab population lives alongside Jewish immigrants from the Balkans and North Africa. After a failed transformation of the neighborhood in the fifties, the neighborhood was rejuvenated in the eighties and many of the beautiful palace-like houses were restored. The neighborhood is both attractive and unique in it's mixed Arab-Jewish set-up.
