Rothschild Boulevard, Tel Aviv-Yafo
Rothschild Boulevard (Sderot Rotshild) is a 1500meter long residential boulevard. As in Chen boulevard we loved the tree lined central strip that houses a pedestrian and a bike line. This one is a bit more noisy but also interesting as there are numerous kiosks and food joints along the way. We were there in the morning so we saw mainly old people or mothers with baby carriages but I guess later in the day people come for the cafés. I hope they wont add many more kiosks though because it would spoil the idea of a relaxing walk through the boulevard.
It’s one of the most expensive streets in Tel Aviv, no surprise it’s in the heart of financial district housing the First International Bank Tower, offices of Bloomberg, HSBC Bank etc But also important buildings such as the Independence Hall of Israel, the Russian Embassy house etc
If you’re into architecture have in mind that the area around Rothschild boulevard is famous for many buildings from Bauhaus movement that flourished during 1920s and 1930s with about 5000 bauhaus buildings (usually white or light yellow colors), hence Tel Aviv is also known as the White City
Rothschild and surrounds has become on the of THE places to hang out, especially on a Friday afternoon.
The wide boulevard, with its even wider central reservation, runs from the Habimah Theatre to Neve Tzedek, tree-lined all the way, providing welcome shade from the scorching Tel Aviv sun. Dog-walkers, young families with kids in strollers, cyclists, pensioners, funky teenagers and just about everybody else, promenade along the boulevard, a mix of the trendiest apartments, best restaurants, coolest cafes, hottest bars, hippest galleries and a host of trendy kiosks supplying great coffee.
It's also one of the main spots for the open air concerts of the annual White Nights festival - the first Thursday of July. Small stages are dotted along the entire length (with traffic blocked off) showcasing local talent.
Nearby Sheinkin was once the place - Rothschild has firmly supplanted it.

If you will raise your head while walking in Rothschild boulevard you will find some lovely things - beautiful balconies , flowers but to my opinion the most lovely thing , or unique if you want to find the better word , is the 3 statues on Rothschild 96 (i think it is the number) - 3 people singing or reading something.
