That noise on the horizon ?
Tarlabaşı is a ramshackle neighborhood in the heart of Istanbul’s European side. It hasn’t always been. Formerly, this cosmopolitan neighborhood -its residents were predominantly Greeks and Armenians – was one of Istanbul’s nicest ones. A dramatic series of events from 1942 to 1974 resulted in almost all of these residents fleeing or being forced to leave. And Tarlabaşı began its uninterrupted slide into pauperization.
