View of North Tel Aviv at night. The Azrieli center can be seen on the left.

The Northern part of Tel Aviv is the more upscale part of town, with many residential areas. It is comprised of several neighborhoods, some of which are known as objects of postcode envy.

"The north" is considered anything north of Ben-Gurion boulevard and west of Ibn Gabirol st, and anything north of "Sha'ul Ha'melech" boulevard and east of it, including the neighborhoods north of Hayarkon river.

The one part of the north that is not residential is Ramat Ha'Chayal - a business area that is quite small but sports a large number of restaurants and bars, to cater for the professional working population that frequents it.

Get in[edit]

By train[edit]

The "University" and "Center (Savidor)", the latter being the busiest train station in Israel, are located in the north and served by frequent trains from all stations in the Israeli rail network. For travel within Tel Aviv, see "By bus" below.

By bus[edit]

The best way to travel within Tel Aviv to the north is by bus. Some of the major bus lines are: 13, 24, 25, 47, 48. They go all the way from the south to the east and can get you close to most attractions in the area.

By car[edit]

The Ayalon highway has several exits in the north part of town - KKL, Ha'Halacha and Arlozorov. Note, especially during the morning rush hour, that driving into Tel Aviv by car is best avoided.
