“Kikar HaMedina Around the plaza, which was designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer (in cooperation with Israeli architects who planned for the existing residential buildings), there is a circular street, He Be'Iyar Street (Israeli Independence Day Street), connecting with two major streets: the north–south Weizmann Street, and the east–west Jabotinsky Street, as well as a number of small streets. The square itself is currently the site of a large, poorly maintained park, however various plans to demolish it and build large shopping centres and luxury towers have faltered due to local opposition. In the 1960s, circuses moved into the sandy square coming to perform. In the early 1970s extensive construction activity began around He BeIyar Street, which established a uniform design and luxury buildings. Many of these buildings have luxury stores and international designer shops located on the first floor, which have made it one of the most expensive areas in Tel Aviv. On 3 September, 2011, Kikar Hamedina was the gathering place for the 'March of the Million', the culminating demonstration of the 2011 Israeli social justice protests. The demonstration was the largest in Israel's history, with approximately 300,000 people marching on the square, and 100,000 demonstrating in other locations across Israel.”

Bus Station
“For most destinations, you don't need to drag yourself all the way to the central bus station in south Tel Aviv; this bus terminal has buses going to many to other cities, including the 480 line to Jerusalem (which is preferred over the train, as it's a longer journey and it doesn't take you to the center. They're now working on new train tracks to fix this). The adjacent "Tel Aviv Sabidor-Merkaz" train station can take you to Haifa and Beer Sheva quite quickly and without traffic.”
