The Real Istanbul Part 4 - Places and People

While the other series were about buildings and history, this is mostly about the people of Istanbul. I'm highlighting 2 key areas that demonstrate the rich tapestry of cultures that once typified Istanbul...most of which is gone but a few remnants. All photos, except Google Aerials are by me.

Ortakoy (Middle Village" Istanbul is really a city of villages. Ortakoy is a very popular area with locals. It is fronted by a mosque by the architect Sinan, a ferry station and numerous shops.

With every one of your threads, you make my regret of having not visited while I was living in Italy all the more painful. What an amazing city.

I second that!!! Where else have I seen such an inviting place to grab a table, and kick back and people watch!

This beats out a view of a river, ocean, lake!

I was lukewarm on going to Turkey, and then I run across photo's like this!

Well, I got all excited that there was a new Istanbul thread that I hadn't seen before, only to realize that it's yet another 5 year old thread that IMBY has drudged back to life. Please stop dude. Reviving an old threat once in a while is no big deal, but seriously reviving 20 five year old threads every single day is just getting out of hand!

(Not to disparage the pictures of course -- great set)
