Kiryat hamelacha is a neighborhood that houses upholstery, carpentry, shops and small industrial plants. The neighborhood borders are: Kibbutz Galuyot, Shlomo Street and Har Zion Boulevard.
The neighborhood is very neglected and many of the houses walls crumbling. During the day, it is an active and crowded industrial area and in the evening, blisters come to the clubs and pubs that have appeared in the last two decades in the neighborhood. In the past decade, many artists have joined the neighborhood and various art-related areas have been opened.
A walking tour of the neighborhood reveals dozens of street art by various artists using different and varied techniques. I recommend arriving on Saturday morning, so the area is not busy and you can roam freely in the streets, courtyards and parking lots.
Kiryat hamelacha is within walking distance from Florentine neighborhood where you will find street art complexes that do not shame areas in New York.
