This study is to measure the level of pedestrian comfort level in an urban area. The level of pedestrian comfort was measured by conducting a study in the selected area where Istanbul's Kadıköy district is located and its connected roads. Firstly, an inventory of the area was made by examining the current state of the area, its location, the historical development of the area. literature study and field analysis work were done. These analyzes include; morphological analyzes (sunbathing, dust / noise / wind), transportation (pedestrian and vehicle), open space/green spaces analysis, reinforcement analysis (barriers, lighting, other equipment) and image analysis. In addition to these analyzes, pedestrian counts were made at peak hours, weekdays and weekends, at various points to measure pedestrian comfort level. Pedestrian comfort level, pedestrian service level, pedestrian density level values ​​were reached from pedestrian counts and physical and morphological values of area. Pedestrian comfort level analysis was conducted in two step. First step is pedestrian service level that is measured with pedestrian counts and other step of analysis is pedestrian comfort level that depends on current physical conditions of area. Service Level and Comfort level is between A to E level (Ocakçı, 2010). The result of comfort level of Bahariye Street is E level, Sakız Gülü is D level.
