Description

Florentin (Hebrew: פלורנטין‎) is a neighborhood in the southern part of Tel Aviv, Israel, named for David Florentin, a Greek Jew who purchased the land in the late 1920s. Development of the area was spurred by its proximity to the Jaffa–Jerusalem railway. As with much of Southern Tel Aviv, for many decades the area suffered from urban decay and poverty. However, today most of the residents are young and the neighborhood is often associated with a bohemian life style. Florentin is now becoming known as a hip, "cool" place to be in Tel Aviv with coffeehouses, markets, bars, galleries and parties.
