This is the waiting hall and actually the major train station building where passengers arrive to buy tickets to their destination and wait for the train to come. In this waiting hall, pilgrims from Europe and from all over the world used to take the train during their journey to the holy city of Jerusalem one hundred years ago.
Tel Aviv first railway station built at 1892 is an historic train station located just off Neve Tzedek, at the junction where Tel Aviv dissolves into Jaffa. It was abandoned many years but had gone lately through a serious renovation process and now serves as a recreational site packed with cafes, bars and fashion boutiques. This place is called today - HaTachana.
The station is located near Jaffa and Neveh Tzedek neighborhood which is one of the first neighborhoods of Tel Aviv and has lots of charm and magic. It is almost like a small village, with a walking distance to the beach and to the shoreline.
Neve Tzedek is probably one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the city, with many buildings renovated in the original architectural style of the area, including this first train station that was built more than 100 years ago.
This neighborhood was renovated in the 80s and today it is a picturesque and charming neighborhood where many of the original houses are still standing.
The beautiful mix of classic and modern styles has made this small neighborhood a magnet for creative artists, musicians and sophisticated young professionals, who live side by side with the working class residents who were born and raised at this place.
