Dizengoff Street

Years ago, during the wild years of Dizengoff Street when it was the most popular street in Tel Aviv, the expression "Le’hizdangeff” was invented, meaning to go hang out on Dizengoff Street, which was considered to be the highlight of Old Tel Aviv’s entertainment until the beginning of the 1980s. Dizengoff Street was considered as the bohemian center of Tel Aviv in the 1950s and until the 1970s and was the home of some of Tel Aviv’s mythological "institutes”, such as Café Casit, where artists and thinkers used to sit. With time the splendor of Dizengoff Street was dimmed and only in recent years it received new life, in businesses, entertainment and the number of people who come to visit it. Beyond that, Dizengoff Street is an important transportation route which crosses Tel Aviv from North to South and it was planned as such already in its first days in the beginning of the 1930s. Dizengoff Street  is named after Meir Dizengoff who was the first Mayor of the city of Tel Aviv and it includes a few of the city’s more known sites, such as the Beit Lessin Theater, the Dizengoff Center Mall, the Zina Dizengoff Square (named after Meir Dizengoff’s wife) and more.
