Yeniköy (Turkish: Yeniköy, “New Village”), sometimes also referred to as Yeni Köy, is a neighbourhood in the Sarıyer district of Istanbul, Turkey. It is located on the European shores of the Bosphorus strait, between the neighbourhoods of İstinye and Tarabya. The sea is at its cleanest in Yeniköy, and the point jutting out into the Bosphorus is shallow enough for you to hear the flow of the currents.
Yeniköy is one of the prominent quarters of Istanbul, and is home to the city’s wealthy figures. The quarter also has some of the finest Ottoman era waterfront houses (yalı) and seafood restaurants in Istanbul, on the Bosphorus shore. The historic Yeniköy Caddesi (Yeniköy Avenue) is one of the loveliest streets in Istanbul. It has two long lines of platanus trees on both flanks.
Yeniköy consists of luxury villas on a hillside and a small area of tightly packed old houses near the sea. The latter area, the old village, has a longstanding Greek community, evidenced by its Orthodox churches.
Yeniköy’s long-established cafes and bakeries lends to a cosmopolitan feeling reminiscent of old Istanbul. Former prime minister Tansu Çiller lives in a town-house on the seafront. In recent years Yeniköy has acquired a community of Filipinos, working as domestic help in the big villas.
There are lots of churches in Yeniköy, including a Roman Catholic Armenian Gothic church, above the fishing harbour. A bust of Cavafy was unveiled last year in the garden of the Greek Orthodox church on the main road, Köybaşı Caddesi. The Alexandrian poet lived here as a child.
