During the first phase of the pandemic last Spring, approximately 420,000 people fled New York City for some period of time, mainly from affluent neighborhoods. Most relocated temporarily to their vacation homes outside the city, or else moved in with relatives in suburban or rural areas, where they felt safer. Still today, midtown Manhattan is a depressing sight – with empty office buildings, shuttered stores and restaurants, and few people on the sidewalks.
Tel Aviv, on the other hand, did not change fundamentally as a result of Covid-19, and the few residents who moved away did so with a heavy heart. Since Tel Aviv is a relatively small city, all areas are easily accessible on foot or bicycle – which is an important advantage these days. The city’s numerous wide boulevards, pleasant parks and beautiful beach promenade make it easy for locals to continue to enjoy the urban environment while staying safe and healthy. Tel Aviv has also retained its status as one of the world’s culinary capitals. Even when in-person dining is not permitted, Tel Aviv’s finest eateries offer home deliveries.
More than just 4 walls
The advantages of living in a residential complex within Tel Aviv have been especially pronounced during the Covid-19 crisis, since residents are much less affected by the situation than others. At the Gindi TLV complex for example, residents live in fabulous apartments with stunning views while being part of a supportive community and effortlessly upholding social distancing requirements throughout the spacious facilities. During the previous lockdown, residents were invited to participate in a slew of activities organized specifically for them, all of which complied to Ministry of Health guidelines. These included yoga classes and cooking workshops via Zoom, among others. Rather than feeling alienated and isolated like so many other people, Gindi TLV residents continue to be part of a warm community.
Gindi TLV’s exceptional amenities also make it much easier to contend with the current situation. The complex includes large common spaces where residents can socialize while abiding by health guidelines, as well as a lovely green park with walking paths situated within the complex. Parents of young children are extremely grateful for the playrooms where their children can blow off steam. The fitness center is also a gamechanger for many people, as is the comfortable business lounge where one can work quietly and conduct Zoom meetings. Moreover, Gindi TLV’s location smack in the center of the city is an added boon, especially now. Many attractions are close by, including government and municipal institutions. Without a doubt, these days the lifestyle offered by Gindi TLV is more appealing than ever.
