De Pijp

With its long, straight streets and inexpensive working class housing, Amsterdam’s Latin Quarter has a celebrated history as a setting for theatres, restaurants, small businesses and a melting pot of cultures. The neighbourhood's newest area is distinguished by its many fabulous examples of Amsterdam School architecture and its charming Neo-Renaissance style buildings, many of which are the former residences of the district's diamond cutters.
