In the southwestern corner of Tel Aviv is Neve Tzedek, the city’s oldest neighborhood. It was founded in 1887 by a group of Jewish families that sought to live outside overcrowded Yafo (Jaffa). While the neighborhood suffered from decades of disrepair during the mid-20th century, it has since been renovated and re-established as a fashionable area. Now, modern constructions contrast with older buildings that have been restored. Narrow, winding streets lined by restaurants, cafes, galleries, bars, and specialty stores give the neighborhood a quaint feeling that is sure to charm. The Suzanne Dallal center (a famous theatre, dance, and culture center), which is surrounded by a piazza and small gardens, and Shabazi Street (where you can find cafes, artisan stores, designer items, and boutique shops) are worth checking out.
