I used to live on Pelesenk Sokak so I know this area well. If you want an authentic Istanbul experience, this is not a bad way to go. Be warned, however, Tarlabasi is a rugged neighborhood that is undergoing gentrification. Don't go wandering here at night. That said, if you like clotheslines draped over the street and the sound of little kids playing at all hours and the smell of wood fire from the kebab place around that corner.
