S/S-O Please send this as an ALDAC including all SEP posts.


1. On this day, the staff of AmConGen Istanbul is moving to
its newly finished and dedicated office building in Istinye
some 11 miles northeast of the historic "Palazzo Corpi,"
which has served as the centerpiece of a U.S. Legation, U.S.
Embassy, and U.S. Consulate since its own completion in
1882. We leave these premises with renewed respect for all
those who have served here before us and with deep gratitude
for the aging but beautiful "grande dame" who hosted us with
such care and affection as the metropolis of Istanbul grew
up around her and a new, more threatening world pressed in
upon her. This will be our last transmission from
Beyoglu/Pera and the Palazzo Corpi. We will be back on line
from Istinye on Tuesday, July 15.


2. Istanbul's new consulate building address is:
Kaplicalar Mevkii Sokak No. 2
Istinye-Sariyer, Istanbul, Turkey
post code 34460


3. Istanbul's new office building telephone system has
direct-inward-dialing (DID).
