Yeah - i like it!

i remember there was a cool english bookshop near the bottom.

Was very sad to see the destruction caused bby the bombing of brit embassy . . .

the trams are smart too.

When i was there in 83, there were still cars on the road, then in 91, it was totally pedestrianised - Istanbul's modernisation (i think this a better term than 'westernised') has been gradual.
