    Mikve Israel Street on Tel Aviv audio tour The Electrifying Story of Gan HaHashmal and Its Architecture

    Take a right onto Mikve Israel Street and keep going.

    At the time of this recording, the corner here is a work site of Allenby Station - a subway station that is being dug here.

    Envious of Paris's Metro, London's Underground and New York's Subway, Tel Avivians have been anxious to get a superb transit solution for quite some time. Actually, plans to do so date back to the 1960's, showing that even in a country like Israel, often dubbed "The Startup Nation", technology cannot undo the bureaucracy. Hopefully, next time you visit here, you'll be able to board the shiny new Red Line - the first underground railway line in Israel, expected to open in late 2021.

    Continue along Mikve Israel Street.
