Sultangazi is divided into three neighbourhoods: Habibler, Gazi and Sultançiftliği. The name of "Sultangazi" comes from "Sultan" word part of Sultançiftliği (meaning farm of the Sultan) and the neighbourhood of Gazi, with "gazi" the Turkish for a venerated veteran of war.

Sancaktepe is a district in the suburbs of Istanbul, Turkey. It became a district in the year 2009.
10) Pendik : Home prices are beginning from $813 per meter-square.
Which is very cute and small district of Istanbul near the sea. If you are lucky you can find sea viewed home. Far away to center of Istanbul. Until the 1970s Pendik was a rural area, far from the city. Today Pendik is a crowded mix of working class housing (especially further towards the E5 motorway) with more expensive apartments with sea views along the coast.
There is a busy shopping district (with a large street market on Saturdays), restaurants and movie theaters. Pendik is far from the city and public transport to the city is by slow buses and minibuses, or by the slow suburban trains to Kadıköy. The coast road is fast but does not carry public transport. There is work in the Pendik/Tuzla/Gebze region, which has seen industrial development in the 1990s. In the 1970s ( the war in Bosnia and Hercegovina started 1992/ or 1870 or 1670 in both dates there was a war in Bosnia and Hercegovina Austria Vs Osman Empire) refugees who escaped from the war in Bosnia settled in the Pendik district of Sapanbağları.
Apart from naming their streets and shops after their village in Bosnia, these people have blended into the Istanbul working-class lifestyle of the rest of Pendik. In the late 1990s two private educational institutions were built inland from Pendik, Koç Özel Lisesi and Sabancı University. The area has a Formula One racetrack. There is a high-speed boat across the Marmara Sea to Yalova for people travelling out of the city to Bursa and the Aegean. Sabiha Gökçen airport is near.
11) Gungoren : Home prices are beginning from $818 per meter-square.
The housing districts of Güngören are slightly older and better established than other districts of 1980s migrants to the city, such as Esenler or Bağcılar, but still consist of narrow streets lined with six or seven-storey apartment buildings with no space between them.
The difference is that the buildings are slightly better-maintained and there are more shops in the streets. But still standards of living are low. Other parts of Güngören are faceless, nameless poorly-lit muddy roads lined with factories. Crime is a problem. Certainly the industrial estates are not welcoming after dark. Lately, the municipality has started to improve the infrastructure, and has extended the tram from Zeytinburnu to improve the transportation in and out of the district.
12) Bagcilar : Home prices are beginning from $836 per meter-sqaure.
Bağcılar is a working class suburban district of Istanbul, Turkey. It is located behind Bahçelievler on the European side of the city, between the two major ring roads, the TEM and the E5. Sparsely populated countryside at the time of founding of the Turkish republic, bağcılar means "vine growers" in Turkish and was known as "Yeşilbağ" (Green Vineyard in Turkish).
But the district has been urbanized within the last decades. Most of the housing in Bağcılar was illegally built Gecekondu but has now been replaced by rows of cramped apartment buildings, also built with minimal regulation. It is a classic example of failed urban planning, perhaps exemplified by the fact that Bağcılar was not created as a district in its own right until 1992, by which time the original inhabitants had all left and building in the area was completely out of control. Bağcılar is now populated by recent immigrants from Anatolia, mostly young families, mostly poor, with many children. These people are struggling to survive in narrow streets of the most basic, undecorated buildings.
There is little infrastructure to support the huge population, no parks, cinemas, and very few cultural or social amenities of any kind. Except one high profile white elephant: there are few trees in Bağcılar, but there is an Olympic Sports Complex. Also Bağcılar has been in the news recently as families in the area are failing to send girls to school. The local council is now trying to invest in parks, cafes and other amenities but the area is so full that there is little space. Bağcılar is a right-wing stronghold.
Bağcılar also houses a great deal of industry, particularly light engineering, textiles, printing (Bağcılar is home to all the biggest of Turkey's newspapers and TV channels), a huge wholesale market for dry goods, a large second-hand car market, and many trucking companies, particularly along the Gunesli link road from the TEM motorway to Istanbul airport. A metro is being built which it is hoped will ease the constant stream of slowly circulating traffic.
13) Buyukcekmece : Home prices are beginning from $838 / per meter-square.
The area administered by Büyükçekmece includes a large hinterland behind the Marmara shore, some of it still rural. In the centre of Büyükçekmece itself, there are still tea gardens on the seafront and other places for kids to play while their families sit, picnic and enjoy the sea views. These are now used by day trippers from the city, especially the nearby dense working-class housing areas such as Avcılar.
There are no holiday-makers now, they have moved further out from the city as since the 1950s the area has become industrialised, over-built with apartment buildings, and populated by migrants from Anatolia.
Today, the inlet and the Marmara Sea are both very polluted and the infrastructure of an industrial city is now in place. Lake Büyükçekmece was connected to the sea until it was separated by a dam to supply fresh water to Istanbul. The bridge of Mimar Sinan is located in this area.
14) Cekmekoy : Home prices are beginning from $867 / per meter-square.
Çekmeköy is a district in the Asian suburbs of Istanbul, Turkey. It became a district in 2009 by secession from Ümraniye. Also; Ömerli, Alemdağ, and Taşdelen villages, 17 quarter and four towns joined Çekmeköy district in the same year.
15) Esenler : Home prices are beginning from $867 / per meter-square. Many of the large numbers of people that migrated to Istanbul in the 60s to 90s ended up in districts like this and with a population of over half a million Esenler has desperately insufficient infrastructure, leading to over-crowded schoolrooms and many other problems. Esenler has the huge inter-city bus terminal of the European side which is going to remove from this city.
16) Tuzla : Home prices are beginning from $878 / per meter-square.
Tuzla is a city and municipality in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Tuzla is the economic, scientific, cultural, educational, health and tourist centre of northeast Bosnia.

As of 2011, the city proper has an estimated population of 120,000 inhabitants, while the municipality has around 200,000, and the Tuzla Canton 499,221. After Sarajevo, and Banja Luka, Tuzla is the third largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Tuzla is an educational center and is home to two universities. It is also the main industrial machine and one of the leading economic strongholds of Bosnia with a wide and varied industrial sector including an expanding service sector thanks to tourism to its salt lakes. The city of Tuzla is home to Europe's only salt lake as part of its central park and has more than 100,000 people visiting its shores every year. The history of the city goes back to the 9th century; modern Tuzla dates back to 1510 when it became an important garrison town in the Ottoman Empire.
In Bosnia and Herzegovina, Tuzla is also regarded as one of the most multicultural cites in the country and has managed to keep the pluralist character of the city throughout the Bosnian war for independence and after, with Bosniaks, Serbs, Croats and a small minority of Bosnian Jews residing in the city.
17) Bahcelievler : Home prices are beginning from $886 / per meter-square.
Some districts of Bahçelievler - such as Bahçelievler, Basın Sitesi and Yayla - are well lit, with tree-lined avenues of attractive buildings and small parks, big shopping centers, cinemas and many small cafés. Traffic in these districts is congested, despite efforts undertaken in 2006 to relieve pressure with new roads, bridges and underpasses.
Outlying districts such as Yenibosna or Soğanlı consist largely of factories, retail and small businesses (including many textile wholesalers), intermixed with extremely dense housing (typically, 6–8-story apartment buildings packed together in long rows) and run through with arterial roads. The infrastructure is poor, and the narrow streets are often choked with traffic.
There are branches of four universities, many public and private schools and hospitals. Prominent landmarks include the Unverdi shopping center (on the site of the old Unverdi cinema, in the center of the district) and the Omur Patisserie/Café on the E5 at the entrance to Bahçelievler. In 2009, a large Carrefour supermarket opened on the E5 at Şirinevler.
18) Sile : Home prices are beginning from $919 / per meter-square.
Şile is a small holiday town on the Black Sea, 70 km from the city of Istanbul, Turkey. Şile is a municipality and is the center of the eponym district of Istanbul. According to the 2007 census, the population of the district was 25,169, of which 9,831 lived in the city of Şile, 2,096 in the nearby town of Ağva (Yeşilçay) and 13,242 in surrounding villages.
However, between June and September, the population rapidly increases because of the many residents of Istanbul who have summer houses in Şile. The district of Şile is part of the province of Istanbul, and the municipality of Şile is part of the metropolitan government of Istanbul. Bordering Şile are the province of Kocaeli (districts of Gebze, Körfez, Derince, Kandıra) to the east and south, and the province of Istanbul districts of Pendik to the south, Çekmeköy to the southwest, and Beykoz to the west.
The boundaries of Şile were expanded by the addition of the village of Esenceli from Beykoz district in 1987. Şile consists of Şile, Yeşilvadi and Teke subdistricts, and 58 villages.
19) Kartal : Home prices are beginning from $986 / per meter-square.
Kartal is on the sea and there are ferries to Adalar (Princes' Islands) and to Yalova. But most people travel by road, it is easy to get from Kartal to both the D 100, the main road from Anatolia to the Bosphorus Bridge, and to the TEM, the huge motorway which crosses the Bosphorus via the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. Also the coast road from Tuzla to Bostancı is another important route. And finally Sabiha Gökçen International Airport at Kurtköy, Pendik is 15 minutes away. And finally when the Marmaray project is completed it will be possible to reach the European side of Istanbul by a commuter rail system without interchange.
Kartal is the terminal station of Kartal - Kadıköy metro (M4). Haydarpaşa-Gebze Line for commuter trains are also passing thought Kartal.
With all these transport options Kartal is becoming heavily populated despite being far away from the centre of Istanbul. Luxury apartment complexes have been built on the coast, along with much more housing inland and this has attracted more shops and infrastructure. There are a number of well-known private and state schools in the area, including Kartal Anadolu İmam Hatip Lisesi a religious high school and Kartal Anadolu Lisesi, one of the few German-language high schools in Istanbul. Maltepe University and Suleyman Sah University are the private universities of Kartal. And the housing is of good-quality in general making Kartal a nice area to live. If you don't mind a long commute. Building near the coast slowed down after the 1999 earthquake, when people became very aware that a major fault line runs just off this coast. However building on the high ground inland is proceeding apace and Kartal is projected to be a major urban and industrial area by the 2020s.
The park around Ayazma Fountain in Yakacik is a popular picnic spot for Kartal's people.
