שכונת היקב
שכונה בצפון מזרח המושבה. ראשיתה באדמות כרם השקדים שנקנו מגרשון לוין ע"י קבוצת פועלים, וחולקו למגרשים של כדונם. השכונה השתרעה לאורך רחוב פינסקר של היום והסביבה הקרובה. השטח היה מחוץ לשטחה המוניציפלי של רחובות.
בשנת 1933 החלו לבנות את הבתים הראשונים (חלקם נבנו על ידי מועצת פועלי רחובות). הבתים היו פשוטים - חדר שינה, הול, מטבח עם פינת אוכל וארון אוויר למצרכים ומקלחת של מים קרים בקצה המסדרון. השירותים היו בחוץ - בור חפור באדמה, ועליו מבנה עץ קטן.
בחצר הבית נהגו לגדל ירקות לצרכי הבית ובשלב מאוחר יותר ניטעו עצי פרי. רק בשנת 1946 נבנתה בריכת מים בת 50 ממ"ק שהקלה על בעיית הלחץ והגעת המים לבתים (מאחר שהשכונה בנויה על גבעה). בשכונה התגוררו פועלים ובעלי מלאכה.

The winery neighborhood
A neighborhood in the northeast of the colony. Originally in the almond groves lands bought from Gershon Levin by a group of workers, and divided into plots of dunam. The neighborhood stretched along today’s Pinsker Street and the immediate area. The area was outside the municipal area of ​​Rehovot.
In 1933 they began to build the first houses (some were built by the Rehovot Workers Council). The houses were simple - a bedroom, a hall, a kitchen with a dining area and an air closet for groceries and a shower of cold water at the end of the corridor. The toilets were outside - a pit dug in the ground, with a small wooden structure on it.
In the yard of the house they used to grow vegetables for the needs of the house and at a later stage fruit trees were planted. Only in 1946 was a 50-cubic-meter water pool built that alleviated the problem of pressure and water reaching the houses (since the neighborhood was built on a hill). Workers and craftsmen lived in the neighborhood.
