For example, Jerusalem was divided into 185 neighborhoods, Tel Aviv to 158 neighborhoods, Haifa to 89 neighborhoods and Beer Sheva to 58 neighborhoods.

Park Tzameret in Tel Aviv is the richest residential neighborhood in the state of Israel, according to the CBS rating. The Tzahala neighborhood in Tel Aviv came in second place and the Denia neighborhood in Haifa was in third place.
