There was a sign listing important dates in the history of the Jaffa port - there were 35 entries. The last is as follows: "November 13, 1960 the Old Jaffa Development co was established by Tel-Aviv-Jaffa Municipality and the Government of Israel in order to bring an end to the "Shetach Hagadol" which had been, until then, a breeding ground for prostitution, drugs, and crime and to convert it into a tourists' area consisting of an artists' quarter and recreational facilities. In addition, the Company is responsible for all municipal services."

So they got rid of the breeding-ground and tidied up for the tourists.
