This paper focuses on community and neighbourhood relations of two high-income districts in Ankara. A suburban and a more traditional urban community are contrasted via a field survey that focuses on attitudes toward certain community values and toward other citizens. The findings indicate that residents in both settings express similar values towards community and neighbourhood relations. Their attitude toward other districts of the city is also similar, indicating an increasing and widespread exclusion of the poor. The varied implications of this investigation, including the nature of the gated community, are explored.
