The sprawling squatter city of Sultanbeyli, on the outskirts of Istanbul. Sultanbeyli is an independent squatter metropolis. Though no one owns, the city has a popularly elected government (yes, a squatter mayor in the 7 story squatter City Hall!) and a massive bureaucracy providing public works and other city services.  Posted by Picasa

very interesting images. they do tell their own story. maybe you might be interested in a closeup of one of the houses located at the "Floodway."

Great photo, Monster. A nice, colorful and well-kept abode. Floodway must be a reasonably nice neighborhood. I've got lots of close-ups of the communities where I lived. I will be posting some of them before too long.

Who should I talk to at Routledge?
