Made up of about a dozen tiny streets crammed with one- and two-story dwellings in various stages of renovation, Neve Tzedek is rich with history. This is where the saga of Tel Aviv began, when a small group of Jewish families from Jaffa laid the cornerstone for their new neighborhood, naming it Neve Tzedek (Oasis of Justice). When Tel Aviv was busy expanding to the north and the east in the early days of the state, Neve Tzedek was allowed to deteriorate. But in recent years the beautiful old buildings were rediscovered, and the lovingly restored homes here are now among the most prestigious addresses in the city.
Full of restaurants and cafés, Neve Tzedek is where you'll find the fantastic dance and theater complex, the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theatre, as well as a growing number of trendy galleries and boutiques. Though bordered on three sides by major thoroughfares (Eilat Road to the south, Herzl Street to the east, and Kaufman Street along the sea), this quarter is very tranquil.
