First established by the Phoenicians, later renamed as "Chalcedon" in the 8th century BC by Greek colonists from Megara, Istanbul's Kadiköy district (Chalcedon) on the Anatolian side is well known for its role in Christianity (the Ecumenical Councils of Chalcedon). Chalcedon (Kadiköy) and Constantinople (Istanbul) were once separate cities, but by the beginning of the 19th century Kadiköy became a district of Istanbul.

Excellent pictures but... Isn't Bagdad Avenue in Kadikoy? Also where are the highrises? I look at a picturesque here and I remember Kadikoy was a modern seaside suburb with highrises and all...

Fine buildings though... :)

"Kadiköy" itself doesn't have any high-rises.

The "Borough of Kadiköy" has high-rises. ;)





Bagdat Avenue (with hundreds of high-rises) stretches on the coastline between Fenerbahçe-Caddebostan-Suadiye-Bostanci and is within the "Borough of Kadiköy", but it's not in Kadiköy proper.

The centrum of "Kadiköy" (Chalcedon) itself is historic and low-rise.

Indicated with red, the centrum is located at the western end of the borough:
