“THRILLIST” RANKS TEL AVIV’S FLORENTIN NEIGHBORHOOD
AS THE SECOND MOST HIPSTER NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE WORLD.
Thrillist recently posted the ten most hipster neighborhoods on earth, stating that although the neighborhood of Williamsburg, NY takes the number one spot, the USA certainly does not have the only say on “hip”. The Israeli neighborhood of Florentin in south Tel Aviv came in second place. noting that “it's the blend of traditional culture and contemporary style that ultimately drew the hipster crowd there. In a city already known for its Bauhaus-style architecture, inspired street art, and 24-hour nightlife, Florentin's the go-to spot for artists, musicians, and people who dress like artists and musicians.”
According to Thrillist: “From Singapore to Stockholm, whole neighborhoods have been overrun with raw denim, ironic sunglasses, and a deep appreciation of the superiority of vinyl records”
The other eight most hipster neighborhoods according to Thrillist are:
Kreuzberg - Berlin, Germany; Malasaña — Madrid, Spain; Tiong Bahru — Singapore; Shoreditch — London, UK; Södermalm — Stockholm, Sweden; Fitzroy — Melbourne, Australia; Vesterbro — Copenhagen, Denmark; Amsterdam-Noord — Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Florentin attracts many tourists and visitors to Tel Aviv, with its bohemian and eccentric mix of bars, cafes, restaurants and nightlife. Levinsky Street, with its profusion of spice stores and foodie shops, is also a great tourist attraction.
