Kumbaraci Yokusu̧
article in Ottomania, Fabrikzeitung n°305, February 2015, Zürich, Switzerland
More information
Kumbaraci is the main street of Tophane, a neighborhood of Beyoglu in Istanbul. The street links the touristic and commercial area of Istiklal on the top, to the Bosphorus shore on the bottom. Kumbaraci is one of the last streets in the area that has not been entirely gentrified yet and where new coffee shops and design studios pop up between local delis and traditional craftsmen's workshops. Ayça runs a small second hand shop on the bottom of the street, where she also lives. A talk about neighbours, Gezi-Park, the president and stolen dogs.
