Why Florentine changed her face?

poor citizens, as well as many illegal foreign workers flocked, to the area that was really neglected. The expensive cost of living in Tel Aviv, got also a crowed of young people for its lower-rents in loft buildings.

different corners of florentin:

in the 1990s, the mix of garages and abandoned buildings in the area, attracted underground artists, that has also some political message. as

drawing on walls is still illegal, but municipal authorities turn a blind eye so entire streets were conquered by spray paint and colorful - inspiring -thought-provoking sometimes bizarre typography

What's now?

in the last 5 years, this urban south part of Tel Aviv became more of a mainstream, so real estate investors took the warehouses and basements, and build tiny apartments like 35 meters in outrages prices: to begin with million shekel++

This change to hipster neighborhood, also brought galleries that opened spots for the artsy crowd, not just the "street tellers"

Were to drink your vegan coffee?

At the beginning of the main street :Florentin I was enchanted to the showcase of SHIZEN. Some plants invited me to walk inside and find a cozy place, to embrace quite moments, from the jumpy vibe of the location

This new place, offers a curious option to indulge in a Florist-Nursery + vegan coffee house. I was looking around to the small details, made from recycled materials. Most of the plants are imported, and the menu is based on vegan products; so I had to choose the milk to my coffee, from options that aren’t my cup of tea
