Neve Tsedek, The Labyrinth


A maze, right around the corner


What is a maze - in a non-Harry-Potter-or-Greek-Mythology-related context? A labyrinth is a convoluted and complicated structure, in which you loose the perception of space. You walk around it, sometimes in circles, sometimes you reach a blind alley; but you always make new and exciting  discoveries along the way. The center of the maze, however, is slightly different and holds within it a surprise. Only when you find that wonder at the heart of the maze, you are able to see your way out.


Or in short:

Is there really a place that embodies the criteria? Are there contemporary mazes? There sure is one I know of. If you've ever been to Neve Tsedek, the oldest neighborhood established in Tel Aviv, I'm sure you've gotten lost at some point. Neve Tsedek is my favorite location in the city. Its narrow streets hide within them gems like galleries, boutiques, cafes, and an abundance of history. With every turn you stumble upon a new discovery, a beautiful detail, a furry cat.

In the middle of the neighborhood, you can suddenly find the "Suzan Dalal" center - an old girls' academy turned theater and dance school. There, when you look around, you can see the beach - your way out of the maze.

And again, in short, this is Neve Tsedek:

How do you define a maze? Have you ever been to one?
