The Original Tuncel Toprak
A bohemian charm runs throughout the small streets of the Cihangir neighborhood, with boutiques, cafés, and bars, particularly on the hectic Istikal Caddesi—a long, pedestrian shopping street with everything from clothing and bookstores, to daytime music performers. The Gezi Taksim Park has also become metonymic of Turkey’s proactive temperament in recent years: The area was due to be flattened and built upon, and peaceful protests were met with police aggression that was seen (nationally and internationally) as symptomatic of a general disharmony between the state and the citizens. The Gezi Taksim Park and the surrounding Cihangir neighborhood are now politically vibrant due to the community of intellectuals, students, artists, and internationals who live, work, and party in the area. Although clashes are less frequent now, the Gezi Taksim Park is best viewed from a distance on national holidays, when demonstrations are more likely to take place. Politics aside, the area around the park is gloriously free-thinking, intellectually fertile, and rife with bars and cafés offering fresh coffee and fresh, optimistic attitudes.
