You know Greece always complian about illegal border crossing and you have to know that thousands of those migrants end up in Istanbul and can't go anywhere(every year 200 thousand to 300 thousand illegals cross Turkish border and half of them stay here-mostly in large western cities).

There are 50000 illegal Armenians living for example in the city.
The old Rromany/Kurdish districts such as Tarlabasi currently inhabitted by Iraqis. Or in Kurtuluş there is a new neighbourhood called "New Baghdad" where the population is completely made up by christian Iraqis.

Most of the streetsellers have African origin.

Central Asians are completely dominant in housekeeping industry, almost every worker has CA origin.

In and around Aksaray and Laleli districts, the daily spoken language is Russian as well as Caucasian languages since Istanbul also home to many people from Ossetia, Akhbazia, Georgia...

Also there are young Iranians coming to the city, many have homosexual background. For example one of my my colleagues arrived in Istanbul 3 years ago and still waiting a "yes" from Canada. Seems like he will wait for next 3 years too and the city started to become his new home. Many examples like him.. after long years they change their mind and then start to wait a "yes" from Turkish authorities this time(unfortunately Turkey's refugee policy is really bad)

Otoh there are legals too that currently carry Turkish citizenship. Bayrampaşa district is home to large Bosniak neighbourhoods that are all established after the war in Yugoslavia. Same places also have large Pomak and Albanian groups.

There are large Tatar neighbourhoods in Zeytinburnu.

Prince Islands still keeps it's Jewish and Greek residents. After the crisis the city also welcomes it's new Greek residents.

Central districts are home to many Erasmus students as well as young professionals from W. Europe.

Other than the foreign residents it's also home to millions of tourists and in the list of top 10 most visited cities in the world.
It will be interest a thread about these districts

Most Turks, including me, are well aware of that, I would say. Some Romanians like Cadîr seem confused though.

You criticize Cadir but you're not any better. Seriously you have no real knowledge about Istanbul or Turkey so please stop writing bullshit in Turkey related threads because you misinform people.

Those wooden structures remind me A LOT of traditional wood-frame architecture here in the United States.
