Florentin

Local nameפלורנטין
LocationTel Aviv, Israel

Florentin is a neighborhood in the southern part of Tel Aviv, Israel, named for David Florentin, a Greek Jew who purchased the land in the late 1920s. Development of the area was spurred by its proximity to the Jaffa–Jerusalem railway.

Predominantly a low-income Mizrahi Jewish neighbourhood, Florentin was initially populated primarily by poor Jewish immigrants from North Africa, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece and Bukhara. As with much of Southern Tel Aviv, for many decades the area has suffered from urban decay and poverty. By the 1960s, the area had declined from a working class area, to becoming a slum, as the original Florentin residents moved out.
