A new organization was established to purchase lands called "Ahuzat Bait" and the head of the organization Aharon Shlush made the first steps by purchasing lands from the ottomans followed by the first pioneers and their families, the whole idea was to be disconnected from the past by creating a liberal and modern residential city and basically living the simple life!
Since the beginning, Neve Zedek attracted many artists, poets and painters such as Dvora Bar-On, Nahum Gutman, Bialik and Jabotinsky and becoming the new home of the Israeli elite.
As the city began developing many residents left to the central and the north part of Tel Aviv and neve Zedek was left behind, building began to fall apart and only the poor and the old continued living there.over the years the municipality of Tel Aviv considered to demolish the neglected area and rise skyscrapers but luckily it never happened!
