Nostalgia Sunday – The Old Train Station is New Again
The Old Train Station in Neve Zedek is a recent and welcome addition to the city’s list of arts and recreation centers.
The site, built in 1890, was home to the Jaffa-Jerusalem railway, which traveled the distance between the two cities in 3 hours and 50 minutes.
The building was abandoned for many years but gained a new lease on life when the city decided to turn it into a cultural hotspot (for more, read the ISRAEL21c article).
This past Thursday night was the opening of Aftershock, a series about the Haiti earthquake’s aftermath by leading photojournalist Ziv Koren. The event was attended by Tel Aviv’s glitterati and while it’s always nice to get a a glimpse of our local beautiful people, there’s no mistaking the star power that is newly revived Station Complex. A definite must-see.
