Originally a Non-Muslim (mainly Greek and Armenian) neighbourhood, diverse ethnic groups live here today: Kurds, Turks, and Roma. It also houses different social groups that are often marginalized in the city: transsexuals, sexworkers, or „illegal” immigrants on their way to Europe.

This blog will cover stories of Tarlabaşı’s inhabitants, its streets and buildings and will discuss the impact on the community of the renewal project “Tarlabaşı Yenileniyor” (Tarlabaşı is Renewed) that foresees the demolition of many buildings and the eviction of a large part of the present populace.
