A series of photos from the lesser-visited neighborhood of Tel Aviv, that immigrants, migrant workers, and refugees call home
MAR 18, 2022
The unique vibe of Neve sha'anan is a callback to its roots as a neighborhood intended for new immigrants. Originally founded by a relatively small group of jews; internally displaced from Jaffa as well as abroad - Neve Sha'anan was always intended to be a home for asylum seekers.
Most tourists, and locals alike, avoid this area at all costs. Due to a relatively new reputation of homelessness and drug-use, Neve Sha'anan isn't viewed as the most welcoming place to tour through. However, with an open mind, you'll find the neighborhood to be home to some of Israels best foreign-run restaurants, asian markets, and a hub of cultural diversity.
