Tel Aviv's Central Bus Station: a grimy commuter hub with a soul
Opened in 1993 with hopes of rejuvenating one of its poorest neighbourhoods, Tel Aviv's Central Bus Station is now commonly referred to as "the Monstrosity". An urban development dream gone bad has given rise to an eclectic mix of commerce and culture.

Girls from Eritrea play in an open area opposite to the Central Bus Station in Tel Aviv, Israel, May 25. An urban development dream gone bad, the seven-storey jumble of grungy corridors was once envisaged as a slick shopping centre serving streams of commuters.

Instead, with many of its store fronts long shuttered, its labyrinth of passageways has given rise to an eclectic mix of commerce and culture. REUTERS/Corinna Kern

Dancers, musicians and circus artists use its free space to practice and perform, and the homeless are also drawn into its shadows.

Dana Forer, 40, an actress and manager of the Mystorin Theatre Ensemble, performs in the group's show "Seven," a site-specific act that uses all seven floors of the Central Bus Station in Tel Aviv, Israel, May 25. "The Central Bus Station is a playground for imagination," Forer said. "I feel full of joy and creativity when we light up the dark spaces with our performance." The station's diversity reflects the neighbourhood, where a large foreign migrant population lives in mostly run-down apartment blocks.

Tamar Lehman, 32, social counsellor for mentally ill young adults, plays an accordion next to books placed inside a cultural center used by "Yung Yidish," a non-profit organisation aiming to preserve Yiddish culture, at the Central Bus Station in Tel Aviv, Israel, May 25. Lehman comes to the station often to practise dancing and play the accordion. "I felt this building is just like the people I work with - they may appear totally confused within themselves, not understood, bizarre, but the more you learn about the people and their inner structure you slowly become more familiar with their inner world, with all its craziness, and you see the beauty," she said.

Every time I walk through it, I can discover a new place that is completely different from the others." REUTERS/Corinna Kern
