Founded in 1887—22 years before Tel Aviv was established—Neve Tzedek (Oasis of Justice) is the city’s oldest and first Jewish neighborhood. During the early part of the 20th century, Neve Tzedek was home to prominent writers and artists, including S.Y. Agnon and Nachum Gutman. Today the neighborhood, with its picturesque houses and narrow streets, is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful parts of the city, with an atmosphere that evokes an artists’ colony or small European village. Its main thoroughfare, Shabazi Street, is also one of Tel Aviv’s most stylish strips, lined with popular cafes, restaurants and designer boutiques.
