Konτoskali (Kumkapı) was one of the most significant and populous Greek districts in Constantinople (Istanbul). During the second half of the 19th century it was rebuilt due to fires; the reconstruction was based on new urban planning principles. The local Greek Orthodox community was quite active, running many schools and associations. Nowadays the district has been almost clear of Greek population.
