As the new decade starts, we asked a variety of Tel Avivians what they’d like to see in Tel Aviv during 2020.
1. Food trucks
We’re not sure where they would fit, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.
2. Legalized cannabis
As they say: Legaliiiiiiize it.
3. Enforced rent control
Please! Before we Tel Avivians have to declare collective bankruptcy!
4. Amazon Prime
“Alexa, please bring Amazon Prime to Tel Aviv.”
5. Korean BBQ
One order of bibimbap, please!
6. La Croix
We’ll take an ice-cold pamplemousse any day!
Benefits include relief from the chronic pain of paying for overpriced alcohol and Apple products.
8. The Apple Store
No more asking your friend who’s flying abroad to bring you back the newest iPhone!
9. Better dating apps
Because we’ve already swiped through the 6 users who are currently on Hinge.
10. Self-driving cars
Even better if they can automatically locate a parking spot near the destination ahead-of-time!
11. A four-day workweek
The local workweek runs Sunday to Thursday. However, everyone knows Sundays are for brunching, not bosses.
12. More recycling
May 2020 be the year of more recycling and less plastic.
13. Free helmets for city bikes and scooters
Protect your head so you can come up with a revolutionary idea for a new startup.
14. Soul Cycle
Our bodies will love it. Our wallets? Not so much.
15. Bubble Tea
It would be beauTEAful to see more boba in TEA-L-V.
16. Legal civil marriages
No more running off to Cyprus or the USA to tie the knot!
17. Ride-sharing apps
Sharing is caring!
18. Much less solo-use plastic
Our city (and planet) deserves better.
19. Free lessons for how to use bike lanes
Start by looking both ways before walking into one.
20. An end to the perpetual elections
In March 2020, we’re heading to the polls to elect our next prime minister — for the third time in less than a year! But at least we get another day off work.
