King George Street (Tel Aviv)
King George Street (Hebrew: רחוב המלך ג׳ורג׳ Rehov ha-Melekh Jorj) is a street in Tel Aviv. The street extends from Masaryk Square in the north to Magen David Square in the south, where it meets with Allenby Street, the Carmel Market, Nahalat Binyamin Street, and Simta Plonit. The street is named for King George V of the United Kingdom who reigned during the British Mandate.
At the beginning of the 1920s, the street was called "Carmel Street." In 1935, it was changed to its current name to mark the occasion of the king's Silver Jubilee. The western section of the street is still called "Carmel Street", which is where the Carmel Market is located.
