Bad neighborhoods in Netanya

To the bad neighborhoods for living we refer mainly to the old neighborhoods. The development here was carried out many years ago, so some streets have a not so pleasant look. Here you are more likely to find houses with moldy or peeling walls, not so clean streets or dilapidated buildings. While you can find these sights in any city in Israel, there is much more of it in the older neighborhoods.

Of course, and here you can find successful objects for living, but it is much more difficult, because it is not easy to find an apartment in good condition in old buildings. Housing in such areas is much cheaper, respectively, and neighbors can get different.

Bad neighborhood in Netanya

In addition, some of the neighborhoods we will discuss below are religious. For many secular residents, life in such areas may not be comfortable, because believers in Israel have a special daily routine and a different idea of the norms of behavior.

If you are not prepared to follow the local rules, or if you are bothered by the prayers that are heard here quite often, you may want to choose a different neighborhood to live in.

  • Neot Shaked (Azorim / Ezorim)
  • Dora
  • Kiryat Sanz
  • Neot Herzl
  • Kiryat Nordau

These neighborhoods are old. There is a large religious or Ethiopian population living here. But the housing prices here are much lower than in the newer neighborhoods. So for some people, these neighborhoods are better on a budget.

In addition, it is worth mentioning that you should not settle near the market and bus station. This area is noisy, not very clean and, attracts not the most prosperous segments of the population.

A controversial neighborhood

In Netanya there is a neighborhood that can be called controversial. For some people it is good, others do not like it.

We are talking about the neighborhood of Agamim. Although the neighborhood is fairly new and has a good location, it neighbors two unfavorable neighborhoods (Kiryat Nordau and Azorim). Whether you will enjoy living here depends on the street you choose to live on.

Other parts of the city

The other neighborhoods of the city are average for any Israeli city. You should choose a neighborhood to live in according to your own preferences.

Repatriates may prefer the city center because of the proximity to all city services and the ulpan (Hebrew language courses), those who want to find a job faster should settle closer to the industrial areas, and those who want to enjoy their vacation should settle closer to the beach.
