    Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
    Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
    and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
    shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
    people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
    Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
    the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
    restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
