Historical[edit]

The neighborhood was attacked in an Albanian Pogrom in 2004, burning several churches and buildings. Since then the Serb population has dropped dramatically.[5]
Serbs settled during the Ottoman-Austrian wars in the 17th century.
After the sacking of Belgrade in the 16th century, Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent settled thousands of Serbs into the wooded area of Istanbul.[6]
Most Serbs lived in the area north of Superior Ave between East 20th and 40th streets. Hamilton and St.Clair avenues were particularly dense areas of Serbian settlement.[8]
