Herzliya (population 88,734 in 2011) consists of two parts which are separated by the main roads and rail line that cut through it. To the east of the highways is Herzliya, the city itself, often referred to by locals as "the city". This is mostly a residential area that doesn't usually get many tourists, although travelers wanting to stir away from the beaten path and see authentic urban life in Israel could find it very interesting. To the west of the highways, right on the coastline, lies an upscale suburb called Herzliya Pituach (הרצליה פיתוח), home to many beachfront hotels and expensive residences. This is a big industrial and commercial center, home to many high-tech companies, decent beaches, good restaurants and lively night clubs, and most tourists to the city find themselves in this area. the main road is named Ben Gurion.
Herzliya, named afterTheodor (Benjamin Zeev) Herzl, was founded in 1924 as a semi-cooperative farming community (moshava) with a mixed population of new immigrants and veteran residents. After the establishment of the state in 1948, large numbers of immigrants settled there. In 1960, when the population reached 25,000, Herzliya was declared a city.
The Interdisciplinary center (IDC) Herzliya operates a local radio station on 106.2FM. Some of its programs are in English. The radio's English website provides program schedule, and marks English programs with "EN".
