While looking for material about the Hanut (Store) Fringe Theater on Tel Aviv’s Rehov Ha’aliya, I came across an interesting quote. Asked how he felt about having set up shop on this particular street, actor/producer/writer Shahar Marom answered that at one time he “couldn’t stand” Rehov Ha’aliya – he wouldn’t even set foot on it!” Now, however, he finds that the street possesses an immense charm.

Truth to tell, you do need to get past the litter, boarded-up shops and run-down houses to take pleasure in Rehov Ha’aliya. Only then will you find buildings that are astoundingly beautiful, explore quaint stores that positively reek of nostalgia, and realize that the street is delightfully picturesque.
