Damn. In a decade Bat Yam will be one of Tel Aviv’s best suburbs (or neighborhoods?) with the great towers, light rail and other public transport connections, the beach.
^^^ That's a pretty pessimistic view of things. Hopefully, everything will work out and Bat Yam will become a better city.
Actually, the slower gentrification happens, the better. It'll give Bat Yam a chance to adjust, correct mistakes and make improvements. The whole process will be more organic.
