Young woman and her dog out shopping in the Florentin neighborhood in South Tel-Aviv.
The Florentine neighborhood in south Tel-Aviv was established years ago by the newcomers from Greece and Turkey. It was planned as a simple and pretty neighborhood, but it quickly sank into poverty and neglect.
Today the neighborhood attracts many foreign workers, legal and otherwise, as well as young students, all of whom like the low rents. The city has been investing in the neighborhood’s infrastructure and in education, but the neighborhood remains rundown.
Despite this, during the day it is a busy and vibrant place where people flock to buy furniture and fabrics, or visit the Levinsky Market.
