This street is named after a Swiss city, where Jews held their first Zionists Congress more than a century ago. Thus, in addition to the above activities attracting more tourists, this place has a lot of history for Jews. Among the major attractions to tourists on this street include street markets where those who love shopping can do their magic at the elegantly planned street shops.

Introduction to Old North Tel Aviv

Introduction To Old North Tel AvivThe Old North is a neighborhood in Tel Aviv, Israel. The locality is surrounded by Arlozorov Street to the south, the Yarkon River to the north, the Mediterranean Sea to the west and Ibn Gabirol Street to the east. Currently, Old North is not as it used to be; it is part of the Tel Aviv’s center.

Highlights Of Old North Tel Aviv

The Old North is the home to Tel Aviv’s largest highlights. At the Old North, you will find the Bauhaus design structures on Ben Gurion Boulevard and Tel Aviv’s political heart in Kikar Rabin. This is the place where previous Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was killed. In this same area you can sit in a Ben Yehuda bistro before going down to the shoreline or rather shop in one of Dizengoff’s best gems stores.

Near Frishman and Gordon, you’ll see some real estate offices, food stalls, youngsters staying nearby, and disintegrating structures and walkways. Once you get to Ben Gurion, Orlozorov, and afterward Nordau and Yirmiyahu, the boulevards and streets get to be more extensive; there are more pathways for cyclists and dog walkers. Here everything appears to ‘neater’,with boutique restaurants and bistros, rather than food stalls.

Who Lives In The Old North?

In casual Hebrew, the saying “northerner” is a derogatory characteristic for Israelis of European origin living in these areas, who are perceived as fortunate and privileged. Currently, this area is made up of an eclectic bunch, but unlike center of Tel Aviv or the south it is less poor and transient laborers are not a typical sight. What you see here are the more seasoned people who have relentlessly stood ground, young families with the financial capacity to lease or purchase here, and the consistent post-military service youths that are discovered in almost any place in the city. Nowadays, the expression “northerner” now to references occupants of the “new North”, those of Ramat Aviv and Bavli.
