An amazing view, the city of Amsterdam on your doorstep. Before you lies the beautiful skyline of Old Amsterdam, you’ll see an array of watercraft on the IJ and be surrounded by the go to spots in the trendy ‘Noord’. Convenient: you’re closer to the historical centre than most residents in the southern, western and eastern districts of the city. The free ferry gets you across the water to Amsterdam Central Station and city center in 10 minutes. But all the amenities that make life richer are to be found in ‘North’, your new home.
Living in ‘Noord’ means a delightful mix of housing, activity and modern culture with fine connections to the long seafaring history of Amsterdam (the IJ is a former estuary). Lots of people building new businesses, and there’s room for recreation too. You can easily compare ‘Noord’ to a kind of New York on the IJ-side, especially the booming part of NYC called Brooklyn, with a stunning view on monumental ‘downtown’.
