Classic western view

Classic rooftop view to the west on a bright, sunny and slightly chilly day. The sea is eastern Med, the red-tiled roofs cover the houses of Neve Tzedek established in the 1880s, and the granite like building blocking part of the view belongs to the Hachsharat Ha-Yishuv company which also owns the Ma'ariv daily paper. There are more tall buildings, office towers and hotels Lining the sea shore to the north as you can see here.
Further north still there are still a few patches of sea to be seen. The buildings in the foreground, built in the 1920s, are on Lilienblum Street, once the place to buy illegal dollars and now a commercial street by day and a strip of popular bars and restaurants by night.
