Summer Vacation Ideas: Istanbul

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads. Straddling Asia and Europe, Istanbul's many neighbourhoods are a feast for the eyes.

It was first proposed in 1929 [1] but has found itself stopped and started and shelved ever since. In 2007, the 2nd Avenue line construction began in earnest, and the MTA…
